Long Description:
Erected in 1786 by Henry Finkle, a Loyalist soldier, it was the first tavern built between Kingston and York. Henry Finkle also built the first brewery in Upper Canada and one of the earliest schools on this property. In 1788 an unfortunate transient was falsely accused of stealing a watch and sentenced to hang by Judge Richard Cartwright, of Kingston, who held the district court here. The tavern became the headquarters, in 1789, of Asa Danforth when he built the eastern section of the Kingston - York Road, the first public highway in Ontario.
