HISTORY OF THE SECOND OLDEST BAR IN THE QUEEN CITY:

Built in 1875 in the German section of Mt. Adams, City View Tavern has evolved from

 

residence to grocery store to tap room to the Tavern that sits at 403 Oregon St today.

 

In 1891, Thomas Spain, a coppersmith opened a grocery store at what was 89 Oregon

 

St. In 1901 Spain opened a tap room in the back of the grocery store.  In 1906, Bernard

 

Recklingloh, a local business owner bought Spain’s establishment and operated the

 

store/tap room for more than a decade. Around the same time, a salesman from the

 

West End, George Lageman went to work for Recklingloh. Upon Recklingloh’s

 

retirement in 1917 Lageman and his family operated the business until 1985. In 1985,

 

Deborah Evans was awarded the business in a divorce settlement and ran what

 

became City View Tavern with her new husband, Silas until 2020.
