Dills Tavern is a twelve room structure erected in three phases from 1794 to 1819. The Dill family maintained a tavern in the area beginning in the 1750's. The tavern was one of several business ventures carried on at this site. A large farm, a mill and a productive distillery kept family members, indentured servants, hired hands and some slaves busy. Regular shipments of whiskey produced in the distillery were sent to Baltimore. The Eichelberger family purchased the plantation in 1800 and kept the tavern open until the 1830's. In time, the structure became a store and eventually a residence. It is the oldest structure standing in Dillsburg Borough.
The tavern is open most Sunday afternoons for tours beginning at 2:00 p.m., a nominal entrance fee is charged for non-members. The tavern is owned and operated by the Northern York County Historical and Preservation Society.
