White Horse Tavern

Established in 1721, the White Horse Tavern was built along Swedesford Road - the oldest road in the state. 

The tavern, originally known as "The Sign of the White Horse," was a drover's tavern and used as a stop for farmers who drove their livestock to market in Philadelphia. During the American Revolution, the tavern was a busy site because of its location between Lancaster, where he Continental Congress was meeting, and George Washington's encampment at Valley Forge.

The tavern is located at 606 Swedesford Road.
