Description

Pre-restoration view of Market Square Tavern showing a number of the nineteenth-century additions to the structure that were later removed during its restoration in the early 1930s. They include the open and screened porches along the front and the full second story eliminating the pitched roof and dormer windows of the colonial structure. A retail store visible on the right side is another example of a nineteenth-century modification. During the tavern's restoration between 1931 and 1932, it was returned to its original form as a story and a half gable end building attached to the main tavern.
