About the Emmitt House

The Emmitt House is now offering Sunday afternoon investigations for those who are unable to do the evening hunt times. These investigations will run from 12 noon to 6pm at a discounted rate.  Please contact us thru the website for more details and to set up your date. We feel everyone needs to experience The Emmitt House so here’s your chance.   



Welcome to the official site for the Emmitt House owned by Pam Ison.

The Emmitt House was built as a hotel in 1861 by the prominent entrepreneur James Emmitt in anticipation of his greatest political achievement – the transfer of the county seat from Piketon to Waverly.  Waverly was located along the route of the Ohio Erie Canal, which was completed in 1832. Emmitt began building his new hotel, a structure he expected would be as fine as any along the canal.  Since Mr. Emmitt’s death in 1893, the Emmitt house has changed hands several times.
