Life-long Warren County resident, author and historian, Fred Compton, spent the more than half his life working at The Golden Lamb. Starting in 1966, as a busboy, Fred worked there throughout high school and college, graduating from Miami University in 1973 with a journalism degree. After graduation, he continued at The Golden Lamb for what he thought would be the summer.
He would stay for 35 years.
Compton has been collecting and chronicling Lebanon history for over forty-five years. Author of several books, including Tales from the Innside and Acadia Publishing's Lebanon: Images of Lebanon and Lebanon's Bicentennial book (availible in our gift shop). A much sought after speaker, Compton has presented throughout Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. He lives in Lebanon with an ever expanding collection of Golden Lamb memorabilia and cheap Chinese watches.
