Old '76 House, Tappan
The Old '76 House is not simply one of America's oldest taverns. Built in 1755 by Casperus Mabie, The Old '76 House had a profound effect on the outcome of the revolutionary war. Through its long use as a meeting place for patriots, The Old '76 House established itself as safe ground for Americans when the air was rife with revolution and the tavern itself served as the "prison" of the Revolution's most notorious spy Major Andre.
