The Tavern on Main was built in the early 1700's. It was originally a two and a half story colonial dwelling, built on a stone foundation. The founders started with a huge center fireplace (the upper portions unfortunately, have been removed over the years) as a building block. Framed walls and floors extended from the fireplace using hand hewn native chesnut and oak lumber in a post and beam construction. These beams and timbers are evident throughout the building as it stands today.
