Village Talk: Bethany Groff Dorau on Historic Wolfe Tavern (noon)

Local historian Bethany Groff Dorau speaks about Newburyport’s connection to the fabled General Wolfe, who fought in the French and Indian War during the battle for Quebec.


Newburyport’s Wolfe Tavern was named in honor of the British General even in the patriotic fervor of the American Revolution. For two centuries, the Wolfe Tavern entertained and refreshed the weary traveler. Learn about the long life and slow death of this Newburyport icon through images, artifacts, and ephemera.
