Virtual Talk: “Taverns in Upstate New York”

This virtual program is part of our Winter Speaker Series, and will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be emailed to all SCHS members before the program.  Using research from over 500 primary accounts of patrons of  upstate inns and taverns, Gerald Baum will dig into the valuable contribution the inn made to the development of upstate New York. He will also discuss what a 19th century patron might have experienced staying the night at a roadside inn.
