Keeler Tavern: Tavern Tours
Saturday, April 30 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm EDT
Location: Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center, 152 Main Street
Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center is offering free specialty Battle of Ridgefield-themed tours on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1. Tours of the historic tavern museum explore the complex history of what it means to live through war at home. By sharing the experiences of former site residents during the Battle of Ridgefield, tours complicate some of the Revolutionary War archetypes we’ve been taught: the “ardent patriot,” the “courageous housewife,” the “loyal Black servant.”
Visitors can also head over to the historic carriage barn for exhibits and activities, including a History Detectives station for children.
Hours: Saturday, April 30, 10:00am to 4:00pm, Sunday, May 1, 11:00 am to 4:00pm. All visitors must check in at the Visitor Center first. Tours go out every twenty minutes and are 45 minutes in length.
This program is provided by the Keeler Tavern and History Center.
