Taverns served many purposes in colonial New England. A place to catch up on news, discuss politics, farming, or local gossip. Patrons also played games such as backgammon, cards and dice. Many taverns were also places to dance, socialize, and of course travelers stopped by for a meal, a drink or two, and a clean bed.  Although taverns typically did not offer much in the way of luxury, guests hoped for clean lodging, a good meal and a decent place for their horse.

The board members and volunteers of the Amity and Woodbridge Historical Society welcome you to the historic Thomas Darling House for their fall Tavern Night.

They turn back time and transform the house-museum into their version of an old time tavern. Complete with a four course meal, fresh brewed ales, (and other drinks), live music, and interesting company, Tavern Night makes a great night out with family or friends.  Food is prepared in the open hearths of the house, and rooms are decorated simply for the affair. Thomas, and his wife Abigail, welcome guests in period costumes.

Reservations are required. Please email  The price of $45 for members of the Historical Society, and $60 for non members gets guests all they can eat and drink at the event. Non members are also given a one year membership to the Historical Society with their payment. We look forward to seeing you!
