Additional Details:
The earliest portion of the building was the boyhood home of Patrick Henry, built by his father, John Henry, in 1735. In 1765 it was purchased by the Michie family who enlarged the building as a tavern and installed the bar and handsome ballroom. The building, open for exhibition, houses a notable collection of tavern furnishings of the period.
