Warwick. An historic Tavern Night March 25

| 15 Feb 2021 | 01:09

Join the Warwick Historical Society for an historic evening at the popular Tavern Night at Baird’s Tavern, 103 Main St., Warwick on Thursday, March 25 from 6 to 8 p.m

Socially distanced and following all local and state guidelines and restrictions, come relax with a bite and a drink where General George Washington once enjoyed a pint of grog with his men in 1782.

As an added feature that evening, Tavern Night attendees will be granted access to a special exhibit upstairs in the Baird’s Tavern ballroom, part of the museum rooms preserved by the society in the historic building.

The “Women’s Tea Party - Secret Suffrage Meeting” exhibit depicts the gatherings women held under the guise of social or literary groups to discuss issues prior to being granted the right to vote.

Warwick’s own Lydia Sayer Hasbrouck (1827-1910) was known since her youth as pushing the boundaries for women’s rights and her publication, “The Sybil,” printed in the mid-1800s promoted women’s attire reform. The “Women’s Tea Party” exhibit is meant to honor the fight for equality.

Due to COVID-19, reservations are required and seating is very limited. Tickets to the tavern night are $45 for WHS members and $55 for non-members, and includes wine, beer and appetizers and the special suffrage exhibit entry.
