“Imagine the terse debates”

In 1784 William petitioned to operate an Ordinary. Because of the new government, a license was now required. Under British rule, such was never obtained or deemed necessary. By this time the Tavern was a popular stopping place during “Public Times” or elections at the courthouse nearby. William was politically active, and a crowded Inn afforded the opportunity to express his views. Earlier in 1779, when local countrymen were weakening in their support of America’s cause, William signed the Albemarle Declaration of Independence and most likely persuaded his patrons to follow suit. One can almost image the heated political discussions that took place over a tankard of ale or spiced rum.

Very interesting step back in time. Just a heads up- it's expensive. Buffet lunch, which doesn't include beverages or dessert, was $17.00 per person and you don't eat in the original tavern but in a room that was added on after the tavern was relocated from its original location 17 miles away. To your the original home/ tavern is $6.00 per person unless you ate there, in which case it's $3.00 person.
