Presented by Taylor McClure, Museum Educator at the Connecticut Historical Society, this program highlights taverns in early Connecticut which were more than just a place to drink. Travelers and locals alike saw taverns as a place to be entertained, spread news and gossip, have a good meal, and get a night's lodging.
