Newbury Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Bradfield's Tavern, Jenning's Tavern

Main Street
Addison, PA 15411

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

A short distance west from Mitchell's [Tavern], a large brick house on the north side of the road, was kept as a tavern by John Bradfield in 1840, and later. The locality was known as Newbury. John Bradfield was the general agent of the first heavy freight line put on the road, moved by six horse teams, stationed at intervals of fifteen miles. He was an old wagoner, and a good business man, and before going to Newbury kept a tavern in Wheeling and in Washington, Pennsylvania. After Bradfield's retirement the Newbury house was continued as a tavern by Moses Jennings.
