The story behind the rebuilt K-Ville Hotel & Tavern goes back after a devastating fire in 2015. After that, the K-ville was completely rebuilt, with a fresh white exterior, a wide open dining area, horseshoe-shaped bar and easy accessibility with a ramp. The deck offers a lovely view of the surrounding countryside.

The history of the K-ville dates back to the mid-1800s as a structure built with local brick. By 1884, an extension was added and then in the early 1900s, a third story with a mansard roof was added. It served as a hotel for cigar and brick factory workers, as well as travelers between Reading, Lancaster and Harrisburg. Rumor has it that the historic K-ville Hotel & Tavern was once a stop for presidential candidates Grover Cleveland and Adlai Stevenson.

The new building displays several artifacts from its past that were rescued by the firefighters who bravely fought the fire, for which owner Curtis Hollinger is forever grateful.

Located at 2647 Heidelberg Avenue in Kleinfeltersville, the K-ville is open Monday through Wednesday at 3 p.m., Thursday through Saturday at 11 a.m. Be sure to check out the Facebook page for specials and the weekend entertainment schedule. To find out more, call 717-949-8413.
