The historic Keeler Tavern is no stranger to parties. The upcoming Fall Party on September 14th is one in a long line of social gatherings dating back to 1772 when Timothy Keeler and his wife, Esther, served drinks in the original Taproom to locals and weary travelers. And like Timothy and Esther before them, the Planning Committee for this year’s Fall Party has lots of exciting things on tap.
The Fall Party is all about fun! Every Point of Interest and corner of our beautiful 4-acre campus will be alive with activities beginning at 6:30 p.m. and will also have an after-party in the Cass Gilbert-designed Carriage-House-turned-Lounge.
Here are just a few not-to-be-missed highlights:
