The Bayard House is considered to be the oldest building in Historic Chesapeake City Maryland.

The Bayard name first appeared in the history of the building in the early 1780s. Samuel Bayard built
the original manor in what was then known as Bohemia Village. With construction of the C&D
Canal beginning in 1800, the town came to life. By 1824, Bohemia Village was renamed Chesapeake
City. Five years after the completion of the canal in 1829, the Bayard house was used as a public building
for the very first time. It was converted into a tavern and inn and called Chicks Tavern.
Sara Beaston became the new owner in1845. Clapboard additions were made in the back of the
building along with a stable to accommodate more travelers and their horses. Thirteen years later the inn
was sold again, this time to Richard Bayard, a descendent of the original owner. It was during his
ownership that it became known as the Bayard
House Inn. The hotel was so popular and
crowded that beds had to be rented in shifts.
In 1899 the inn was sold to William
Harriott, who renamed it the Harriott Hotel.
He operated it as an inn and tavern until the
1919 prohibition. With prohibition being the
law of the land, the tavern was used as a
storefront to sell tobacco. Harriott, caught up
in the financial despair of the depression, hung himself in the hotel.
Captain Albert Battersby bought the inn in 1960 and kept it for 22 years. The property was then
purchased by Allaire du Pont, a local resident credited with the restoration of the handsome brick Inn and
much of the small village of Chesapeake City. Her loving touches can be seen throughout the building.
She spared no details in the restoration, including the locks on the doors, which are replicas of the original
ones found in the attic. The Bayard House still displays Allaire du Ponts
beautiful needlework.
Since her passing, the restaurant was purchased in 2011 by Wernie
Wiesnegger, who also is a local resdent, Austrian born. Along with this new
endeavor, he continues to own and operate The Bohemia Caf, located at
401 Second Street in Chesapeake City.
