Dennisville Inn

Built: 1836. Original Location: Main Street, Dennisville

This Federal style building was constructed in 1836 for use as a tavern and inn, and served as a center for town meetings, social gatherings and a resting place for stagecoach travelers from Philadelphia to Cape May. The building was used as a tavern until 1870 when its owner became a Baptist; it was then used for church gatherings and meetings. The use of two front doors-one opening into the center hall and the other into the bar room was typically seen in other inns from the same time period in southern New Jersey.
