This building is part of the historic buildings in York that one can explore. Jefferd's Tavern is a great building to see how a old tavern was set up. There are many original pieces of furniture inside also.

The Town of York has many historic sites and this is one of the most interesting. Can just walk around inside this 1700's building and feel the sense of what had been.

The Jefferds Tavern serves as the Welcome Center and Museum for the Museums of Old York. The museum does a nice job of capturing local history and has a few real gems in its collection. In combination with other houses, MOY is an excellent way to spend a day looking back to colonial times.
