Colrain's Inns and Taverns

Located near Colrain's meetinghouses, crossroads, and stagecoach routes, inns and taverns have flourished throughout the town’s history, providing patrons with news, drink, food and lodging. Colrain native Brad Brigham will offer a peek inside each of these vital, public houses at the next program of the Colrain Historical Society on Thursday, July 14.
