Tavern Night at Noah Webster House
Saturday, July 11, 5 pm to 8 pm
Advance registration required: $50, $40 per Museum member.
Price includes dinner, two complimentary drinks, live music, tavern games, and historic house tour.
Enjoy the raucous atmosphere of an 18th century tavern in this exclusive night out at the Noah Webster House! You will be served a three-course hearty tavern-style meal and delicious beverages by candlelight, followed by rollicking tunes from renowned musician Don Sinetti who will be performing sea chanteys in the Yankee whaling tradition. 18th century tavern games such as Skittles, Captain's Mistress, Shove Ha'penny, and several others, as well as a special house tour will make this a memorable occasion.
The Noah Webster House and West Hartford Historical Society are located in the restored birthplace and childhood home of Noah Webster. Webster was a national figure known not only for compiling the first American dictionary and the Blue-Backed Speller, but also for being a federalist, an abolitionist, and a cofounder of Amherst College.
