History of Adas.jpg
Meet the Owners.png

Hello! We are Devon and Allura Lawrence. I (Devon) am from Lebanon County, Allura from Red Lion, PA and we currently live in Palmyra. I grew up camping and fishing in Perry County and began looking for property in the county I grew up loving to take our camper for fishing trips. In our search, we came to meet Sherri and Dave Price and soon after we began the process of acquiring Ada’s. I have spent my entire life working and managing restaurants including the past two years as a restaurant consultant. Having my own place has always been a dream of mine and I couldn’t be more happy than to realize that dream right here in Liverpool! We cannot wait to make new memories and hear more stories about all the fun times in this building!

The sign says Old Trail Tavern but the locals know we're "Ada's." In 1957, Mac and Ada Snyder purchased property along the Susquehanna River and opened an establishment called "Brass Rail Bar." After Mac's passing in 1971, Ada changed the name to "Ada's Country Bar." Despite being legally blind, Ada continued to run the bar for over 50 years, enjoying the conversation of locals and travelers alike. Ada was truly a one-of-a-kind, larger-than-life woman who, despite owning a bar, did not drink alcohol and did not permit cursing. To this day, those who had the honor of meeting her still tell tales of a kind and wise woman who was one of the best spoons players around. In 2007 Ada passed away at the age of 96 and willed her property to Sherri and David Price. The Prices completed a full renovation of the building, adding on an addition which nearly doubled the size of the bar and gave it the new name of "Old Trail Tavern." Today, we honor our establishment's rich history by featuring a scratch kitchen and hand-crafted cocktails. We hope you enjoy your time with us and come back real soon!
