Palatine society to hold day at the tavern

ST. JOHNSVILLE — The Palatine Settlement Society will hold its annual Afternoon at the Tavern on Oct. 13, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the historic 1747 Nellis Tavern on Route 5.

A variety of beer and cider will be provided by Wolf Hollow and Rogers Cidery. Soup and bread will also be served. Tickets, available in advance, are $15 per person with a limited number of tickets available at the door.

Money raised from the event will help fund continued restoration of the 1747 Nellis Tavern and homestead. The stenciling project, now on display, highlights the original patterns that decorated some of the walls of the Nellis home during the early 1800s.

Tours of this historic structure will also be conducted. For information or tickets, call Judi at (518) 568-2997 or Joan at (518) 842-6400.
