Treasured today as examples of folk art, tavern and inn signs of the 18th and 19th centuries were part of the local landscape. Eye-catching symbols were designed to attract business, both from locals and travelers. Food, lodging, entertainment and a place to meet were provided by these local establishments. CHS’s collection of such signs is the largest in the nation. Richard Malley, Head of Research and Collections at CHS, will examine the changing face of such signs and their role in the local community. Registration begins March 1st!
