In the late seventeenth century, Swett-Ilsley House served the town as Swett’s Tavern, one of three watering holes in Newbury. The huge fireplace and massive beams create the perfect backdrop for an evening of historic fun. Join your friends around a rough tavern table and enjoy traditional local brews from Ipswich Ale Brewery, and a hearty tavern dinner while listening to true tales of sword fights, scandalous romance, and bloody brawls, all from Newbury’s storied past. Must be over 21. $35 Historic New England members, $60 nonmembers.
