In the shops, taverns, government buildings, homes and streets,  George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, George Mason and other Virginia Patriots debated the ideas of liberty, independence, and personal freedoms  that led to the founding of American democracy and inspired generations of Americans and others from around the world.

Dinner provided at a Colonial Tavern

Taverns were not only an integral part of colonial life in America, but were also a necessity. The modes of travel and transportation of the day mandated the location of a tavern every few miles on the main thoroughfares, where tired and hungry travelers could find food and drink and a bed or floor upon which to sleep.
