Saturday November 7, 4:00 p.m. Free. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, inns and taverns were not only the resting spots for travelers, but also the gathering places for the communities that they served. Often, these buildings were used also for town halls and religious meeting houses. It was there that one learned and discussed the news: local, regional, national, and world. Several such places existed in Salisbury, some even survive today. Local historian and Housatonic Valley teacher David Bayersdorfer will discuss the historic inns and taverns of Salisbury along with images and stories about them. The program is presented by the Salisbury Association Historical Society in collaboration with the Scoville Memorial Library. Bayersdorfer honors the research of the late Dean Hammond, historian and retired Connecticut State trooper whose childhood was spent in one such establishment. The talk take place at the Salisbury Town Hall, second floor 27 Main Street, Salisbury,CT.
