Dining in Eagle Tavern, Greenfield Village, 1982

Summary

In the early 1980s, Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village began assessing and upgrading the interpretation 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 1982, re-creates the dining experience of that era.
