Tavern 1757 is named after the original saltbox structure that was on the property built in 1757 by Epharim Smith. The home had served as an inn and stagecoach stop for travelers along the country road which became current CT Route 34. Most of the original inn’s timbers were incorporated into the interior design of Tavern 1757.
