Tavern Fare at Conestoga Turnpike Day

The Tavern

The Mill at Anselma (located on Conestoga Rd in Chester Springs) hosted a festival in honor of the bicentennial of the incorporation of the Conestoga Turnpike in 1811.  The Conestoga Turnpike was an inportant link for teamsters of the Conestoga wagons and drovers to move produce and livestock to Philadelphia and mercantile goods into the more “wilderness” country of Chester Springs and beyond.  My “wagoners” tavern is outside but captured the spirit of the taverns of that time.
