History of the Tavern Room 

When Christopher and Simon Heller arrived in the New World in 1738 on the ship “Winter Galley”, another passenger on this same ship was Christopher (Stoffel) Wagner.  Hellers and Wagner were to eventually become neighbors, and in 1748, Wagner received a license for a tavern which was built along the road passing through Hellertown in 1752. The exact spot of the tavern has never been 100% verified; however, local lore believes it might have been in or adjacent to the sawmill.  This is the basis for the name of the Tavern Room adjacent to the lower level of the actual Grist Mill building. Together these two rooms are called the Tavern Room.
