Abrams's Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Skinner's Tavern, Clary's Tavern, Reynolds's Tavern, Brownfield's Tavern, Marlow's Tavern, Cresap's Tavern, Turney's Tavern, Hendrickson's Tavern, Magee's Tavern

Main Street
Addison, PA 15411

May be the same tavern as Brown's Tavern.

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

The first tavern ever kept in Petersburg [Petersburg is now known as Addison] was by Gabriel Abrams, father of the late Judge Abrams, of Brownsville. It was a frame house, on the south side of the road, and built by Gabriel Abrams, aforesaid. This house did a large business throughout the entire career of the road, as a national highway. Subsequent to the time of Abrams it was conducted successively and successfully by John Skinner, Daniel Clary (in 1830), William Reynolds, Thomas Brownfield, James Marlow, Michael Cresap, Peter Turney, Joseph Hendrickson and Henry Magee.
