Count Down to Opening Day: What is New in 2012 - 7 Days until Opening Day
With only 7 days until Opening Day, we are happy to announce our new Hosmer's Tavern Suppers!
1830s Hosmer’s Inn Tavern Dinners
New this year! Have you ever wondered what life was like at a 19th-century stagecoach inn? What were the innkeepers like, how did they entertain their guests and what did they serve hungry travelers for meals? Now you can actually experience what it was like to dine in an authentic stagecoach inn that was once located on the old State Road in the heart of the Genesee Country! The museums’ own Sylvester Hosmer Inn, built in 1818, is now serving traditional tavern dinners on select weekend days this spring and fall.
You’ll have an opportunity to meet the Smith sisters and enjoy a delicious four-course meal that will include dishes prepared using receipts (called recipes today) from early 19th-century cookbooks. Learn about 19th century dining customs and share the latest news from the Genesee Country and beyond. You’ll also have a chance to explore the newly renovated inn upstairs and down. No evening at the inn would be complete without joining other guests in a parlor mixer to brighten everyone’s spirits and fill the rooms with laughter. Enjoy a private lantern tour around the historic village square with one of our hostesses between the final two courses of your meal. Step back into 1836 and share in this unique historic dining experience - you may find it hard to journey back to the 21st century!
