The History of 1925 PubHouse

The History of 1925 PubHouse

Amanda McAlarney | January 24th, 2022

The Grandview Public Golf Course in Anderson, Indiana was completed in 1925 and our facility that now houses our restaurant was completed in 1927. In June of 2020, 1925 PubHouse was born. Our history goes beyond just our name. Prior to our opening in August of 2020, we met with Stephen Jackson, Madison County Historian. We learned that in the years after Grandview Golf Course opened, the Anderson Business and Professional Women's Club sponsored a luncheon to celebrate a new airfield build on the southside of Anderson. The guest list included internationally recognized individuals including Amelia Earhart, Weir Cook, Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, Anthony Fokker and Major Reed Landis. The future president of General Motors Corporation and United States Secretary of Defense, Charles E. Wilson was in attendance as a dignitary.

We proudly feature a picture of Amelia Earhart in our dining room, taken at our location on Grandview Golf Course. We also feature specialty cocktails fondly named "Amelia Earhart" or the "Rickenbacker Smash". The next time you are in town, be sure to stop by and experience the history of 1925 PubHouse!
