Historical Presenters outside Eagle Tavern in Greenfield Village, 1983

Summary

In the early 1980s, Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village began assessing and upgrading the interpretation of many of its buildings, focusing on the dramatic changes that Americans experienced during the 1800's. This included reinterpreting Clinton Inn to its 1850s era, when proprietor Calvin Wood operated the building as Eagle Tavern. This photograph, from about 1983, re-creates that 1850s era.
