he Keeler Tavern Museum has been
a farmhouse, tavern, stagecoach stop, post office, hotel for travelers, home
of noted architect Cass Gilbert and, since
1966, a museum. Now decorated with period furnishings, and changing exhibits from the Museum's collections, its past comes alive
as costumed guides lead tours through room settings that portray life in rural Connecti-
cut from the early 18th century to the mid 20th century. As part of your tour you will
be shown the Museum's famous cannonball lodged in an outer wall in 1777.
The classic Cass Gilbert Garden House built
in 1915 for his wife, Julia, overlooks a brick walled garden with reflecting pool and rose arbors. Its 25' x 50' space, an available ban-
quet facility, is suitable for up to 100 guests.
It provides an ideal location for weddings, cocktail parties, concerts, business meetings, lectures and other ocassions.
The Museum is conveniently located on 2
plus acres at 132 Main Street (Route 35) in historic Ridgefield, Connecticut. It is easy to reach from major highways throughout
the tri-state region.
