You are invited to visit the last surviving 1700's structure of its kind in Virginia's Northern Neck!

The story of this tavern and its relationship to the development of Northumberland County and Virginia's Northern Neck reflects what happened in countless court house villages throughout Virginia and the nation.

Woodworkers Guild

The Tavern Woodworker's Guild was established in 2008 under the sponsorship of the RH/HT Foundation Inc.

The Guild is organized primarily for educational purposes, including:

  • to encourage and facilitate the establishment of training programs for aspiring woodworkers
  • to disseminate information about sources of material and equipment
  • to expose the art of woodworking to the public
  • to make items typical of the tavern era for sale to the public
  • to provide information about woodworking for the general public

Any person, firm, school, museum engaged in/or interested in woodworking may become a member.

Our period woodworking shop is located downstairs in the Carriage House and is open for display on Fridays 10am - 3pm and during Farmers Markets. We also have an active working modern shop upstairs for members. We meet off-site on Wednesdays.

The Guild makes products to sell in the shop, Tavern gift shop and at Farmers Markets. Recently, the Guild taught a well-attended Heritage Arts class in making an heirloom-quality wooden Kaleidoscope.
