Glenview-Peerless to Present ‘Colonial Taverns’ in March

Historian Jim H. Johnston gives an illustrated presentation on the unique role taverns played during Colonial times in this month’s latest installment of the Glenview Mansion and Peerless Rockville Speaker Series.

The presentation, at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14 at Glenview Mansion at Rockville Civic Center Park, 603 Edmonston Drive, is free to attend and open to all.

As the United States prepares to mark the 250th anniversary of the Revolutionary War, learn about these uniquely American places where the American Revolution was born and reared. Beyond alcohol, taverns were the restaurants, motels, coffee shops and community centers of their day. There is nothing like them today. Railroads and prosperity were their demise. Johnston has studied and written about taverns — and has frequented a few — and will share his research and experiences.

Space is limited. Preregistration is highly recommended at or with course #28501 at
