  • 46) Squires Tavern committee meeting

    46)  Squires Tavern committee meeting - April 21, 2001
                 The office of the Secretary of State has completed their review of the Squires Tavern lease.  The committee approved the revised lease and will recommend that the town of Barkhamsted accept the terms outlined.  If the town accepts, the State and town will sign the document, passing control and operation of the building to the Historical Society.  Plans will be made for a possible lease signing ceremony and open house at the Squires Tavern in June.  With the sequence of construction and ownership of the Squires Tavern pretty much determined, work will start on the actual National Register of Historic Places application process.  Eagle Scout Brian Waltz outlined his plan to build a structure to house displaced bats from the building.  Harriet Winchenbaugh announces that $180 has been received from the Yankee Magazine fund raising program

    45)  Garden survey - April 14, 2001
    Kim McManus surveys the area around the Squires Tavern building for an appropriate area to lay out a herb and/or period garden.  She has agreed to help establish the garden as part of her outreach project in the UConn master gardener course.

  • 44) Building investigation

    44)  Building investigation - April 9, 2001
    Walt Landgraf and Fred Warner take a close look at certain features of the Squires Tavern building, especially the basement, crawl space and attic in an effort to determine the age and construction of the main house and ell.  It appears that the main part of the house was built first, then the ell to the south, then the ell to the east.  There is some evidence that another back ell may have existed at one point, and possibly some future archaeology work may determine settle this.
