Once a year, The Old Tavern is open for business...but you can't go inside and corn fritters are NOT on the menu. The Tavern's parking lot was open for parking at a cost and electricity was used by the vendors who set up in front of the building.
The Unionville Tavern Preservation Society would like to thank you for your support of the effort to "Save The Tavern!" in 2012. The Society's successes are directly related to your support and the support from the "Friends of the Old Tavern", generous donors, community members, and other organizations. We are encouraged by our progress and look forward to increased activity in 2013.
We hope you appreciate our hard work thus far and will continue to support the effort to "Save the Tavern!".
