THE PUBLICK HOUSE


Sturbridge, MA - Founded in 1771 by Colonel Ebenezer Crafts, this Inn became a favorite spot for teamsters to stop while traveling the Post Road from Boston to Albany. In 1824 the Inn was visited by General Lafayette and his son George Washington Lafayette, but he was late and he never made it past the taproom before he had to go on his way. Travelers still stop at the Inn but instead of the Post Road; travelers are taking Route 84 or the Massachusetts Turnpike, or as everyone calls it the "Mass Pike". I eat here often and really enjoy the Yankee cuisine. Before dinner they give you a bread basket with excellent sticky buns.

I can't believe we missed this place on our summer trip two years ago.
