Washband (Washburn) Tavern
90 Oxford Road
Finding this place marked my first time I was ever in Oxford. I didn’t stay too long, but the drive through the woods over from Lake Zoar was lovely.
Even though the Freedom Trail put together a new, far better website, there’s still not too much about this building:
The Washband Tavern was built in the early 1700s and is said to have been a site on the Underground Railroad. The building operated as a tavern for four generations. Hiding places are said to exist in the cellar. This property is privately owned and not open to the public.
It is currently home to a financial services office.
