Tavern Night @ Riversdale House Museum
May 2 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Tavern Night @ Riversdale House Museum | | |

Make merry with the spirited sounds of the Ship’s Company Chanteymen as Riversdale’s basement is transformed into a 19th century tavern. Gather with old friends and meet new ones as you enjoy period appropriate beverages and a tavern-style menu in a lively atmosphere.

Taverns were a mainstay of 19th century American society, acting not only as watering holes but also inns, post offices, and general stores. In 1802, George Calvert sold a parcel of land for the construction of Rossborough Inn, later repurchasing this popular Baltimore–Washington, D.C. travel stop and serving as its owner in the 1820s and 30s.

This program is for guests ages 21 & up. Advance payment is required by April 24.
