Gadsby's Tavern Museum

For DHR’s “Historic Virginia, Site of the Month” March selection, we partnered with Gadsby’s Tavern Museum to create this slideshow about this legendary tavern and inn, located in Alexandria, and visited by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and other American leaders. Here patrons could order iced refreshments and ice cream (including oyster flavor!) year round.  (To see past “Historic Virgina” slideshows, go here.)
