This original eighteenth-century building, expanded to its present size after 1751, housed one of the best known taverns in Williamsburg. It bears the name of its builder and first owner, Henry Wetherburn, who previously operated the Raleigh Tavern across the street. A distinguished clientele was attracted by the good food, drink, and festive social life. An inventory of Wetherburn's fine furnishings guided their replacement. The tavern has been restored to its appearance of about 1760.
