A Social, Transportation and Political HubOne of the oldest buildings in Southampton County, Mahone's Tavern was a social, transportation, and political hub of Jerusalem (now Courtland) because of its proximity to the county courthouse. Beginning in 1796, the structure served as a tavern, operated by different proprietors as Kello's Tavern (1799-1828) and Vaughan's Tavern (1829-1839) until Fielding Mahone bought it in 1840. Mahone also bought Hart's Tavern next door and connected the buildings with a passageway to form Mahone's Tavern.
