Taverns and Tavern Life in Early New England

Wednesday January 19, 2022
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM

Flyer for Taverns and Tavern Life in Early New EnglandTaverns in Early New England were as numerous as churches, and played at least as large a role in the community. From typical food and drink, to the common topics discussed, and the songs sung by the fireside, this talk will look at what it was like inside the “public houses” that dotted the highways and center villages of virtually every town in New England.
Tom Kelleher is Historian and Curator of Mechanical Arts at Old Sturbridge Village, where he has worked for over 35 years. A past president of the International Association for Living History, he regularly teaches and demonstrates around the country. Tom holds a Master's in history from the University of CT, and writes often for a variety of magazines and journals, including Early American Life
