The Gen. Horatio Gates House and Golden Plough Tavern are two historic buildings located in downtown York, Pennsylvania, York County, Pennsylvania. The Golden Plough Tavern was built by Martin Eichelberger in 1741 and is a two-story, Germanic influenced medieval half-timbered, log and brick building. The General Horatio Gates House was built by Joseph Chambers in 1751, and connected to the Golden Plough Tavern through a shared kitchen. It is a 2 1/2-story, brick and limestone dwelling in the Georgian-style. It was the home of General Horatio Gates (1727–1806), while the Second Continental Congress convened in York, September 30, 1777 to June 27, 1778. The buildings were restored between July 1961 and June 1964, and operated as a museum by the York County Heritage Trust. The Barnett Bobb Log House was moved to this location in 1968.
