    General Sutter Inn: Swiss Gold Rush Victim Sutter

    by billus Written Jan 12, 2003
    49ers all the way

    John Sutter was born in Switzerland and in 1834, fleeing creditors in Europe, arrived in New York. In time, he headed west and sailed up the Sacramento River to begin a settlement. By 1848, work was being done on a mill when some gold flakes were spotted in the water. Soon Gold Rush fever struck and Sutter’s land was overrun. Because of his need to be near Washington, D.C. while seeking reimbursement for his lost lands, the Sutters stayed one summer at the Springs Hotel in Lititz. They decided to settle there, and promptly bought a home and placed their children in school. The hotel is now known as the General Sutter Inn, and the Sutter home built in 1871 is across the street at 19 East Main Street.

    Favorite Dish: Sutter’s grave is just behind the Moravian church. It is interesting to note that Congress later decided to honor General Sutter’s grave with a seven-foot high solid marble fence. A local resident refused to allow such a site to mar the cemetery, and a trench six feet deep was dug, allowing only one foot of the marble slabs to show above the ground today! . In recent times, the people of Sacramento, California, sent a plaque to honor the founder of their city. It is also at the gravesite.

    Dining here was a frustrating...

    by feline01 Written Oct 4, 2002

    Dining here was a frustrating experience for a vegetarian. Nothing but horrid chain places like Subway or bars serving meat. There might be some nice restaurants here but we never found them during our several visits.

    The Log Cabin Restaurant: Lancaster County's Best

    by NitnyLeo Updated Sep 12, 2002
    Log Cabin Restaurant

    Arguably, the best restaurant in Lancaster County. It is also the most expensive restaurant in Lancaster County. If you like appetizers and deserts and drinks with your meal, be prepared to spend about $100 per person.

    The restaurant has a variety of rooms. The main dining room features a fireplace, which, in winter, adds to the cozy, comfortable setting. The smaller rooms are even cozier....perfect for a private, romantic evening.

    The service is excellent...expect to be pampered.

    Favorite Dish: They have excellent steaks. And they make the best veal picatta I've ever had (unfortunately, it's not always available). The calamari appetizer is excellent.
