The Samuel Waters Tavern is a remarkable little piece of history tucked into the center of New England, fronting one of the many old turnpikes common to Massachusetts. The tavern was constructed around 1775 by Mr. Samuel Waters and his wife Prudence. The property was used not only as a tavern and a private residence, but at one time in its history it was also used as a meeting house for a local group of Freemasons.

The quaint New England home has been a witness to colorful history throughout its more than 235 years of existence, including the residence of a pair of “maiden ladies” and a noted woman suffragist, Lucy Phelps. Lucy’s signature can still be found on many of the walls in the upstairs ballroom of the tavern.
