Title

Taverns and Trades-19th Century Taverns, Inns and General Stores

Location

Beidler House

Description

During the 19th century a variety of places were used for overnight accommodation, public gatherings, and family celebrations.  Some of these taverns also served as the general store for the local community.  What would they be like?  Who owned them and who stayed in them?  Join historian Marcia Houston as we look locally at the many Gibraltar area taverns and general stores including Miller’s Tavern, Thomas Hesser’s Tavern, Thompson’s Store and Washington Kissinger’s hotel and store.
