Gadsby's Tavern Museum
Comprising a 1785 Georgian tavern and 1792 hotel, Gadsby’s Tavern and Museum is named for John Gadsby, who operated the businesses from 1796 to 1808, which were the center for politics and business as well as the stage for many dances and musical performances attended by prominent patrons such as George Washington, who celebrated his birthday here twice, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.
