Description

Exterior of the Raleigh Tavern, north facade, viewed from behind the tavern to the northwest, 1935. The tavern's rear entrances, many windows, and chimneys are easily observable. The Raleigh Tavern was the frequent scene of both jollity and consequence. Burned to the ground in 1859, the tavern was reconstructed from published illustrations, insurance policies, and archaeology that uncovered most of the original foundations.
