" Local architectural treasures" Pawtuxet Favorite Tip by gosiaPL
Pawtuxet Favorites: 16 reviews and 21 photos
Favorite thing: All historic buildings in Pawtuxet are clearly marked with a plaque that states their name and date of origin - fans of the old architecture will love to tour the village!
The Carder Tavern (goes back to 1740, as you can see in the picture) in Post Road was the main inn or stop for old stagecoach travellers. Gee, the Post Road name makes sense now if it was the main route to and through Pawtuxet. I can imagine the stagecoaches brought in all the mail to the village...
There are various stories about who stopped overnight at the tavern and who did not... One story mentiones Chan and Eng, the famous Siamese twins, who stopped there on their New England tour in 1829.
