The Colonial Tavern Experience: A Virtual Event with Mike Welch

July 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Custom House Maritime Museum Presents: “The Colonial Tavern Experience,” a Virtual Event with Mike Welch

Learn about one of the most important public spaces in the towns of early America: the tavern! What made taverns such successful businesses? How were they regulated? And how they were a threat to the church? From licensing the tavern keeper, to “wine, women and song,” you are sure to leave this virtual event full of new information, and humming a historical tune!

Join us on Friday, July 3rd, 2020 for a virtual presentation focused on the Colonial tavern experience to kick off the reopening of the Custom House Maritime Museum, and the opening of our new exhibit: Entertainment for Man and Horse: Victuals, Libations, and Distractions in an Early American Tavern.
