This historic home and tavern dates to the late 18th century and is located along the Hartford to Boston Turnpike (Route 44A). It takes its name from the prosperous New England Brigham family; born in 1750, Gershom Brigham was the first tavern-keeper. For decades, the building served as a tavern and inn for travelers along this route. Its most famous patron is George Washington, who once ate breakfast there. The building is now a private residence.
