Nelson County Historical Society

Tavern Room

In its earliest years, from about 1838 to about 1849, the building in which the museum is housed was used as a tavern and was on the "Washington City to Lynchburg Stage" route. (Remnants of "Stage Road" still exist in Nelson County.) Many of the items on display represent what would have been seen in a tavern in the mid-1800s. 
A map of the local part of the stage coach route is on display and offered for sale in the museum store.
