Tavern Talks: Enlightened

On Thursday, June 21 from 7-9 p.m., enter the “Age of Reason” with our latest Tavern Talks theme of the enlightenment! To be sure you are well-informed, our notable guests for the evening include inventor Mr. Joseph Priestley (portrayed by Dean Howarth of Living Histories of Science), astronomer Caroline Herschel (portrayed by K. Lynn King), and a horticulturist (portrayed by Chuck Feld). We will also be putting the light in enlightenment with an interactive historical lighting display by demonstrator William Russell. Finally, guests will be immersed into a coffeehouse setting where news of the day would have been discussed in the 18th century.

Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more. Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older.
