Hull’s Tavern Sign

Sign for Hull Tavern

circa 1785 (Date manufactured/created)
Measurement Notes: 32 1/2” H x 23 3/4” W + 4 1/4” H crest
This wooden sign promising “Entertainment” marked Hull’s Tavern, which was built in 1772 by Lewis Goodsell (the son of Greenfield Hill’s first minister), and later operated by Stephen Hull. One memoir recalled the tavern doing a brisk business, hosting regular dances with wine, plum cake, and a fiddler. 
Gift of Elizabeth Howard Nichols
