History

The building in the Knox hamlet of Township is about 180 years old. Once the Township Hotel, the way station served as a halfway point between Schoharie and Albany

Harry and Delia (Barney) Palumbo had a tavern there for a long time. It was sold twice and then a third time to Paul Centi in 2006 and is now a family dinner destination. Prior to Paul opening it a large addition was added to the back of the building. The bar area was remodeled and relocated to the west side of the building.

What a shame that when the front of this building was last remodeled there was no attempt to restore the historical look of the building. It would have made it worth visiting to see the outside instead of just what is inside.
