The number of Americans drinking a daily cup of coffee is at the highest level since 2012! But did you know that our demand for coffee was just as strong in the 18th century? By the mid-1700s, the coffeehouse was an institution in the colonies that attracted all levels of society. On October 7, 2:00 to 4:00, the museum will present a program about this popular beverage and the “coffee-house taverns” that served not only as social gathering places, but also meeting places for political discussion and talk of revolution! Tours and demonstrations of open-hearth cooking using early American recipes and ingredients are also included. Admission is $4 ages 13 and older; $3 ages 3-12 and free age 2 and younger. No reservations are necessary.
