Colonial Tavern Night

THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PUT YOUR NAME ON THE WAITLIST FOR TICKETS, PLEASE CALL 203-762-7257

Join the Wilton Historical Society for an entertaining evening of fun, food, drinks, trivia, and games!

Taverns and inns were an integral part of 18th century Wilton, serving as restaurants, bars, rest stops for weary travelers, and community centers. These businesses were so vital that for a time, Connecticut colonial law actually required several towns to have at least one tavern open. On April 28th, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, the Wilton Historical Society will celebrate and acknowledge these important historic places by hosting its own one night only tavern at the museum!

Just like the town’s colonial residents, guests can help themselves to delicious food and drink, try their hand at some colonial tabletop games like Shut the Box and Nine Men’s Morris, listen to traditional folk music, and explore part of the Society’s c. 1772 Sloan-Raymond-Fitch House, which operated as a tavern throughout the American Revolution and was nearly burned to the ground by the British 246 years to the day of the event. Guests can also participate in a themed tavern trivia contest and test their knowledge of the 1700’s with a chance to win some reproduction Colonial drinkware.
