ASHLAND, OH - Since 1819, The Mifflin Inn Restaurant has been a beacon of hospitality in the Mifflin Township area, providing travelers and regular customers with the tastes of home-cooked food and drinks. On Friday, the Mifflin Inn Restaurant reopened after two years of renovations by the new owners, husband-and-wife team John and Carolyn Keough.

"It had shut down in March of 2017," said Carolyn. "The owner had died, and so they put it up for sale. We made the offer in April of 2018."

The offer went through in June 2018, and John and Carolyn went to work, replacing lights, windows, and other features of the restaurant to update and streamline the restaurant's design. The restaurant had seen several previous renovations over the years, with one re-opening taking place on February 5th, 1941 - according to a newspaper clipping hanging on the restaurant's wall. 

"We've been spending seven days a week - over twelve hours each day - just trying to make it open back up," Carolyn said.

The restaurant held a ribbon cutting with the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the hard work and effort put into the renovation. Surrounded by friends, family, and their staff, the Keoughs cut the ribbon to a round of applause.

"This is signifying that we're done with construction and now we're ready to go forward with the restaurant," John said. "There's a lot of work ahead. Now the real work starts."

The Mifflin Inn Restaurant is located at 35 Maine Street in Ashland. For more information, visit the restaurant's new Facebook page.
