The Warwick Historical Society (WHS) will host their annual Tavern Night on Sun., Mar. 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Iron Forge Inn, located at 38 Iron Forge Rd. in Warwick, NY.
“We are excited to begin a new Tavern Night tradition – highlighting a different historic inn or restaurant each year,” stated Lisa-Ann Weisbrod, the WHS executive director.
The Iron Forge Inn is located in a ca. 1760 house in the once-busy mill in Bellvale, where Longhouse Creek once powered saw, grist and woolen mills, along with a 1700s Colonial iron forge destroyed by the British.
The Iron Forge Inn property has had many owners over the years. In 1950, the Peck family opened it as the Inn. The Johansen family purchased the property in 1998 and Chef Erik Johansen, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, emphasizes local ingredients with his modern American menu.
Delicious pub food will be served, accompanied by craft beer, wine and a signature beverage. Music will be provided by Mike and Anne Baglione, who will set the tone for a great celebration.
Tickets are $40 for WHS members and $50 for non-members. If space is still available, tickets will be on sale at the door. To purchase tickets call 986-3236, ext. 101.
