Wednesday Evening Lecture, January 17 at 7:30 pm.

The History of the New England Tavern with Joe Carlin.

The origins of “taverns” and the important role that they played in the country. It was in taverns where the political future of the nation was debated, Shakespeare’s plays were preformed, court was held and traveling musicians performed. During the Revolution taverns served as sites for military trials, prisons and hospitals. Come learn about the drinks of choice in taverns at the time and how they related to our English connection and trade routes.

Speakers: Joe Carlin, Nutritionist and Culinary Historian.

Free for museum members; $10 for non-members. Held in the Heard House of the Ipswich Museum.
