The Old Stone Tavern
Dobbs, Kelli W.
Sheppard, Rebecca J.
The Old Stone Tavern is one of two remaining examples of early nineteenth century architecture in Kent County, Delaware, utilizing Piedmont stone. All three of the documented buildings that reflect this construction style in Kent County can be traced directly to Manlove Hayes (d. 1849). These are the Old Stone Tavern (c. 1822), the Octagonal Schoolhouse (1834) and the stone addition at Hayes' personal residence, York Seat (1826.) The York Seat property is no longer standing.
