The GBT will be seen in full holiday splendor with themed decorations courtesy of the Country Garden Club of Weston, which annually creates a unique and fully reimagined display for the Tavern.

Built in 1768, the Golden Ball Tavern was established and operated by Tory turned Patriot, Isaac Jones. The Tavern played a pivotal role in the unfolding of the Revolutionary War when it served as a base for British spies. The house and Tavern were later occupied and carefully preserved for 200 years by 6 generations of the Jones family. The Tavern is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is entirely self-sustaining.
The Holiday Open House is a prelude to the Golden Ball Tavern’s members-only Wassail event on Sunday, December 14th. Please consider joining today; memberships are available through the website at www.goldenballtavern.org.
