The General Wayne Inn located at 625 Montgomery Ave [http://www.housefront.com/PropertyDetail.aspx?propertyID=1989750 HouseFront] ] in Merion, Pennsylvania is a tavern on the National Register of Historic Places. Established in 1704, it was originally named the William Penn Inn, but changed its name in honor of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne. There is a legend that the building is haunted by Hessian soldiers.

Recently it has been purchased by Chabad of the Main Line, and has been converted into a synagogue and Center For Jewish Life. [ [http://www.chabadmainline.org/ Chabad-Lubavitch of The Main Line ] ]
