Newtown Heritage Walk No. 1The Half-Moon Inn (popularly known as the Court Inn) is located at 101-103 Court Street. The south portion of the Inn was the original one and one-half story frame cottage of Margaret and Joseph Thornton built in 1733 and later used as a tavern. The Inn was a popular gathering place during court sessions when Newtown was the County Seat; hence, the name "Court Inn."
