This is of three copies I found of the excise tax paid by Petrus Elmendorf to have the Tavern here. Document dated 1824, is the latest one I have. So I at least have a record the the Tavern ran till then. Note; Petrus had to sign that he would not conduct any cock fighting , playing cards or dice, pool playing or any other gaming within the Tavern or any out buildings. Also He paid a $125 back in 1824; a lot of money back then.
