A historic and well-known Langhorne Borough landmark is up for sale at an asking price of $2.5 million.
Ben Asta, one of the owners of the Langhorne Hotel Restaurant & Tavern that he other family members purchased in 1972, confirmed in a brief telephone conversation on Wednesday that he and the other owners are trying to sell.
The establishment, originally built in 1704 and extensively renovated and remodeled over the years, is being listed with Long & Foster.
According to the online listing, the three-story structure at 100 W. Maple Ave. — at the corner of Maple and Bellevue avenues — is 11,000 square feet. It includes a hotel, bar and restaurant plus several residential apartments.
Asta said simply that he and the other owners are “tired” and want to relieve themselves of the responsibility of owning and operating the establishment after 50 years. He did not respond to a request for more information and comments.
Once known as The Tavern at Four Lanes End, among other names, it was renamed The Langhorne Hotel in the early 1900s. It remains open while being listed for sale.
