The Olde Dutch Restaurant and Banquet Haus, a homestyle restaurant in Logan, Ohio, sits at the edge of a stand of stately oaks that Logan natives have called Rempel’s Grove for over 100 years. In the 1840’s, the site was used as a community picnic ground. It was easily accessible from downtown Logan by canal boat for a 15 cent fare. Later, the woods were known for hotly debated political gatherings, huge ox roasts and railroad fund raising rallies.
After the Civil War, local war hero and capitalist Col. Ferdinand Rempel, the City of Logan, and the Hocking Valley Railroad, hosted a reunion for over 1,000 Union veterans at this location, with then Governor (and later President) William McKinley in attendance. It was considered an ideal location because excursion trains could be brought in from four directions.
Today the rail line still runs through Rempel’s Grove and the old tow paths from the canal can be seen along the Hocking River. The Olde Dutch Restaurant opened in Rempel’s Grove in August of 1994 to provide a family restaurant inspired, trained and supplied by Ohio’s Amish Country restaurants. Rempel’s Grove has once again regained its popularity as one of the most visited attractions in the Hocking Hills.
