The Hor House, a hostelry built for Isaac Hor prior to 1819, was located north of the Griswold Inn on Main Street (today 820 High Street). Built during Worthington's boom years during the 1810's, the elaborate Greek Revival style building demonstrates a high standard of carpentry and joinery skills. Migration from the east following the War of 1812 brought an economic boom to Worthington and central Ohio. James Kilbourn's Worthington Manufacturing Center attracted businesses, workers, and skilled labor. The collapse of the economy in 1819 brought an end to Worthington's growth.
Known as the Beers Tavern for the family who owned it most of the 19th century, the building was destroyed by fire early in the 20th century.
