The Tavern is the site of the school programs, video orientation and special events of the Old York Historical Society. The Tavern was built in 1750 in Wells, Maine on the King's Highway, which was a stage and mail route between Portsmouth and Portland. It was first operated by innkeeper, Captain Samuel Jefferds. In 1925 the broken down building was acquired by William Barry, historian and architect. He had the tavern completely restored and remodeled in colonial style in the imagine of the Wayside Inn located in Massachusetts . It was falling prey to vandalism, and the building was moved to its current site. There is a charge for admission.
