Only $10 and is filled with pictures past and present of the Tavern, plus historical facts about the building. Thanks to our neighbors at Nelson Farms Country Store, you can find these limited edition calendars for sale right in Nelson. 

View a timeline chart of ODT progress from 2020 to 2023 here.

From 2020 to 2022, volunteers made tremendous progress on the preservation and renovation of the ODT. Please take a look at this visual compilation of our successes, with much more to come!

October 2022: The  ODT is ready for priming! Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help.

May 2022: Thanks to a grant from Oneida Savings Bank, the ODT got a beautiful new metal shed roof and gutters on the back of the building.  With this improvement, we are now able to repair the historic sill beams in this part of the structure. We think it's a fabulous improvement, and we hope you do too!

August 2021: Carl Stearns and Nancy D. spent the day gathering over 30 paint exterior samples from various locations, red hot yellow jackets not withstanding in a couple of places. Samples will be sent off for analysis to determine the “chromochronology” (sequence of paint types and colors) applied over the last 218 years. Check out the photos for some new discoveries made today!
