In Norton sits a little piece of history that has been converted into a popular local restaurant.
Wolf Creek Tavern since 1840 has welcomed all sort of people from Civil War veterans to thirsty Prohibitionists to politicians. Fast forward to today, and The Wolf Creek Tavern’s story continues, serving fresh local American food with a hint of Irish tradition.
One of the attractions that continues to draw a crowd is the basement of Wolf Creek which served as a ‘speakeasy’ during Prohibition. The ‘speakeasy’ history has been preserved the best it could be. The rumor among the locals is that Wolf Creek is haunted and sitting at the chestnut tree bar, while drinking a prohibition-era cocktail, will take you back many decades in history.
Wolf Creek Tavern offers a full menu, tavern menu and a catering menu all which includes food locally supplied. They also believe in supporting local musicians; three times a week there is live music. Three banquet rooms are also available to customers for private parties. Wolf Creek Tavern is a 15-minute drive from downtown Akron.
