Abraham Yost both lived and ran a pub in the building, and his business grew because of its place along the highway to Cincinnati. He constructed the structure in 1805, the year in which the town of Montgomery was incorporated. Within 4 years, Columbus-bound traffic was triggering service to boom; Yost’s customers bought more than fifty barrels of bourbon in 1809 alone. After Yost, the building became a home alone; White Miller bought it in 1870, and his descendants remained in ownership and in house till 1968. In the latter year, the neighborhood’s Kiwanis club acquired the property, donated a few of the goods to the local historical society, and sold the residue at public auction. The club kept the pub for simply eleven years prior to giving it to the Montgomery city government in 1979.

Architecturally, the pub is a basic gable-front structure with a rear lean-to. The two-story facade is pierced by 4 openings (a doorway and window on the first floor, and two windows on the 2nd), with another entryway to the side. The walls are weatherboarded, set on a stone structure and covered by a metal roof.
