The Barnard Tavern has been closed for restoration for many years and we are excited to open its doors to visitors again. Come for a day of celebration and festivities to include special tours and activities, including horse-drawn wagon rides. At Hall Tavern we will have hearth cooking demonstrations featuring tavern fare, a craft activity for children, games in the bar room, and early 19th century music and dance in the assembly hall.
