1740s Tavern Becomes Victim of Recession | NBC Connecticut

1740s Tavern Becomes Victim of Recession | NBC Connecticut: "Since 1740, the Marlborough Tavern has been a fixture of this small town southeast of Hartford, but it will close this weekend.

The establishment, which has operated off and on as a tavern and restaurant, has been a host to presidents and even the French army during the Revolutionary War, but Saturday will be the tavern's last day until a new owner is found.

Jim Bradley took over the restaurant in 1985 with three friends. The building had been vacant since the previous owner closed the place in 1979. After a rough start, "the whole thing took off," Bradley said."
