1739 - 1964

Built in 1739-40 by Peter P. Demarest. In 1766 he received a license from the local court to "keep a Tavern or Public House" here. The old inn witnessed many stirring events during the American Revolution.

In November 1776, Washington led his retreating Continental army past its door enroute from Fort Lee to the Delaware River. On May 30, 1964, the old tavern was destroyed by fire, ending 198 years of service.
