Samuel and Jean Lemon were the proprietors of the Lemon House Tavern. Travelers on the Allegheny Portage Railroad would stop to get a drink, get something to eat, or just rest as their trains were being prepared for the rest of the journey on the Allegheny Portage Railroad.

Visitors can walk to the historic Lemon House from the park Visitor Center either by following the boardwalk or the old Gallitzin Road. There is no parking at the Lemon House. Additional parking is available at the park picnic area. Picnic area parking requires a 1/2 mile hike on trails through the woods to get to the Lemon House.

The first floor of the Lemon House is open to visitors daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The first floor contains a period bar room, fancy parlor, dining room, and exhibit room. Park staff, as available, will greet visitors and guide you through the building.
