Our Tavern's History
The stone building in which we reside dates back to 1740. Then, it was known as the Sign of the Spread Eagle and was a stage tavern. It catered to the more prosperous class of travelers, providing well-suited accommodations, fine liquors, and fine foods. Then, food was served in generous portions, satisfying the hearty appetites generated by a long day in a stagecoach.

Almost a century later, the tavern became the residence of Reverend Edward V. Buchanan and his wife Eliza Foster Buchanan while he established and served as pastor of All Saints Episcopal Church in Paradise.

His wife Eliza was the sister of Stephen Foster, whose immortal songs will always be a part of American history. In fact, Foster penned some of his greatest music here. In addition, Foster also sent many of his manuscripts to his sister here, as she was a talented musician in her own right, for her approval. It was here, on the banks of the Pequea, Eliza and Stephen played many Stephen's songs including: 

• My Old Kentucky Home

• Way Down Upon the Suwanee River

• Oh, Susanna

Presidential Purchase
In 1854, shortly before Edward and Eliza moved to a new pastorate, the building was purchased by Edward's Brother, James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States. Through the generations, the Revere Tavern has preserved a tradition of quality in abundance. If you choose to dine with us, we sincerely hope you find dining in the romantic glow of history a delightful contrast to ordinary dining.
