Rose Tree Tavern

Standard

Today I went down to see my mom as I wanted to take her to dinner and shopping. We didn’t go to that many places in the mall though. I’m not seeing that many gifts that I wanted to buy, but I did get a few things. I happen to get a good coupon for the dinner-  $15 toward $30 meals. We went at 4:45, so got the early bird special-we both got prime rib, mashed potatoes and a big salad. We got beverages and a piece of cake and I had to pay a little more, but I haven’t seen my mom go after a meal like she did this one (me too). It was a bit salty, but I got over it. : )

Before we went to the mall and the restaurant, I wanted to stop at the Rose Tree Tavern that use to be on the corner of a busy road where my bus went by all the time and on the National Register of Historic Places . They moved it back and renovated it. I was dying to see the inside as a tourist bureau, but they had it locked up at 3:30! I did take a few photos though.

From the front-isn’t it lovely for a 272 yr old building? I know they didn’t have to redo the stonework.

Be sure to click the highlighted link to see the various steps of renovation. Someday I’ll get to see inside!

  1. That is a neat old building for a tourist bureau. Our Chamber of Commerce is closed on Saturday. Makes no sense to me to be closed on the days the tourists come to town!

    What a good deal on the prime rib dinner. Glad you and your mom enjoyed it so much.
