The Square Tavern Museum and Art Center is part of the Historical Society's new program of outreach to our community. Inside the Tavern we have replicated what the tavern would have looked like in the 1700's downstairs, and created a local artist gallery and art center upstairs. Through the year the art gallery is open on Saturdays from 11am to 4pm with special openings listed on our event page. Artists work is for sale as well as special exhibits and events which are advertised on our social media platforms.
The tavern has a gift shop which sells Newtown Square images pottery, afgans, ceramic houses, books and other items.
Guided tours of the tavern occur through the summer and at specific dates through the year. Costumed guides will give you a glimpse into tavern life in Newtown Square in the 1700's.
The art center will offer lessons in painting and drawing, craft workshops and special exhibits throughout the year.
The Benjamin West Gallery is located on our first floor and offers samples of the renown artists work along with interpretive speaker, sculptor Terry Jones, giving informative talks on West's life and work.
Terry joins us on specific Saturdays throughout the year.
All participants are volunteers from our community and we welcome anyone interested in joining.
More information on our weekly programs can be found on Instagram at square_tavern_art_center and our facebook page Newtown Square Historical Society.
