Gadsby’s Tavern Museum
You can solve all the world’s problems over a pint of lager, which they did at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. In their words, “Gadsby’s Tavern Museum consists of two buildings, a ca. 1785 tavern, and the 1792 City Tavern and Hotel. In those seven short years, the young Republic began to take shape through the conversations and choices being made in these tavern spaces. The impact of these choices and how far to extend power—political, economic, and social—is still being felt today. Named for Englishman John Gadsby, who operated them from 1796 to 1808, the tavern businesses were central to Alexandria’s port-based economy, offering spaces to dine, entertain, and spend the night. A large enslaved labor force made Gadsby’s renowned hospitality possible. Notable patrons that enjoyed this hospitality included George and Martha Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the marquis de Lafayette.”
Culture near Alexan Florence
Julie A. shares, “I’m gonna confess that I was a little bit obsessed just to be in the room where a Hamilton song kinda happened…and I may have done a couple of “If you had to choose if you had to choose choose…” before the family also on the tour started looking at me funny. It’s a cool little museum made out of just a real place that’s survived historically preserved. The design of the museum made it fun to visit, it’s very cost-effective to go to, and you can even mail a couple of postcards on the museum!”
