  • 149) Squires Tavern work party

    149)  Squires Tavern work party - January 23, 2002
                     Volunteers photograph and record details of a bedroom partition and closet wall and then begin the process of removing them.  This opens up the original ballroom, a very important room of the Tavern.  It was hoped that the removal of the partition would yield more evidence of early wall stencil, but no such evidence is found.  Ted Bachman records details (dimensions, room trim etc.) not only of the removed walls but of the entire ball room.
