The former King George Inn, a landmark in neighborhing South Whitehall that shuttered in August, is on the real estate market.
Since closing, there have been multiple offers on the property, which is listed at $1,399,000, according to Bill Plasha, chairman of the commercial group for Prudential Patt White.
"Of the 80 properties I currently represent it is the hottest," Plasha said. "There are a lot of people in the restaurant industry looking at the site - the majority of them are looking to keep the building."
The King George Inn was built in 1756, and even before the Revolutionary War, it was serving weary travelers. It has been designated a National Historic Site by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
The land surrounding the inn, where a Burger King and video store once operated, was recently purchased by Hotel Hamilton LLC. Plasha said there are no civil engineering or design plans under way because the company is banking the land for now. He also said Hotel Hamilton has not bid on the King George property and has had only "very light discussion" about it "that hasn't materialized into anything."
