Parade and Open House at
Squire's Tavern- Monday, July 4, 2005
The Historical Society participated in the Independence Day Parade at Pleasant Valley.
Our special focus during the parade was honoring Doug Roberts and his many years
of service (since 1988) as Barkhamsted Town Historian along with years of excellent
service to the Historical Society. After the parade we held an open house
at the Squire's Tavern. We were very pleased to see new friends and old who
stopped by to see what is new at the Tavern, including the front parlor with wall
stencils, liquor keep and "new" floor boards. Historical Society guides were
available to answer questions and discuss plans for the future.Below- photos
