Fine Dining & Elegant Rooms Since 1832

About  Us

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS In 1832, John A. Roebling of Mulhausen Germany purchased Saxonburg with a vision to create a German community in America whose foundation would be agriculture and light manufacturing. Roebling laid out this land with a broad main street running east to west with the parcels fronting on Main Street. The parcels were sold to Mulhausen families who ventured to America to seek fortune. Roebling, in his Saxonburg shop, developed and patented the process for the manufacture of "wire rope" in 1842. This led to Roebling finding fame and fortune as a designer and builder of suspension bridges such as the “Brooklyn Bridge” throughout the world. The late 1840's saw Roebling's cable in high demand. To meet demand and access better transportation the "Cable Works" was moved to Trenton, New Jersey. The oil boom in Western Pennsylvania prospered in the 1880's. "Golden City," a boom town one mile west of Saxonburg, appeared rapidly on the country side, and like other boom towns, disappeared as quickly as it came. Saxonburg of the 20th Century served as a weekend getaway for Pittsburgh families, offering spacious land along with clean fresh air. John A. Roebling's vision still lives today in Saxonburg with a blend of agriculture and light manufacturing. Self determination, innovation, and industriousness planted by the early founders continue to serve the descendants of the families who advanced to America with Roebling. Hotel Saxonburg grew up with the community. It was known as the Vogley House until 1863 when it was purchased by E.F. Muder and renamed the Union Hotel. Francis Laube purchased the Union and renamed it the Laube House which it remained until the end of the 1800's. The Gentile family owned and operated the "Hotel" for 54 years. The new owner, Judy Ferree, purchased and renovated the "Hotel" in July of 2010, bringing back Executive Chef Alan Green.
