Menu from Clinton Inn (now Eagle Tavern), Greenfield Village, 1952

Summary

In 1929, Henry Ford restored the Clinton Inn--a nineteenth-century stagecoach stop--with a modern kitchen and dining room to serve students of the Greenfield Village schools. The building was redecorated and opened for public meal service in 1951. Visitors could enjoy a cafeteria-style lunch in the dining room and view period-room exhibits in the formal parlor, barroom, and sitting room.
