The St. Rose Tavern, built in 1922, is a long standing landmark in St. Charles Parish. It replaced the Old Red Dog, which previously occupied this spot until it burned in  1920. Built originally as the St. Rose Hotel by Charles Elfer, it furnished  living accommodations to workers in the oil industry.  The River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, was also the only route between the cities, and it served weary travelers also. 

Descendants of the Elfer family, still operate the business.
