Colonial Taverns

Did you know that the Union County community of Roughedge is named after a tavern called Rough Edge during colonial times? In Waxhaw, the tavern near the NC/SC border was Cureton's; a place where legend holds that George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette both enjoyed a stay there.

A few quick facts about taverns:

Unfortunately, one would be expected to share a bed with two or three other strangers if you paid to stay the night. Accordingly, it is no surprise that women preferred to stay in private homes when traveling.
Using cups and spoons for measuring portions were created in Taverns instead of using the British system of scales to serve customers faster; first fast food in America.
Taverns often served as the local post office.
Alcohol was served with all meals because water wasn't considered safe to drink.
The music for the Star Spangled Banner was originally used for a patriotic English tavern song.
The local tavern was where you could catch up on the local political news and gossip.
