This old tavern was a stagecoach stop on the Mountain Road between Richmond and Charlottesville and it was here that horses were changed. For most of the 19th century, the Higgason, Barlow, and Shelburne families operated a tavern here.

The Tavern, built in the mid-18th century, is a typical hall-and-parlor vernacular house of the Piedmont region. The sycamore trees that stood here for many years gave the Tavern its name.

Since the early 20th century, the Tavern has served the educational and cultural needs of the community as part of the Montpelier School for a time and as the Page Memorial Library.
