Benjamin Patterson Inn, also known as Jenning's Tavern, is a historic inn and tavern located at Corning in Steuben County, New York. It is a two story, ell shaped frame structure in the Federal style. Built in 1796, it is the oldest frame building in the area and perhaps all of Steuben County.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]

The Benjamin Patterson Inn is operated as an early 19th-century period historic house museum by the Corning-Painted Post Historical Society. Visitors can tour the historic tavern room, dining room, kitchen, guest quarters and innkeeper's quarters, and view the Society's collection of textile equipment in the Long Room. The Inn grounds also include an 1855 log cabin, an 1878 schoolhouse, an barn with agriculture tools and equipment, and a working late 19th-century blacksmith shop.[3]

The Society also operates the Painted Post-Erwin Museum, a museum of local history located in a late 19th-century railroad depot in Painted Post, New York.
