Site of Pioneer's Tavern

Here Ethan Allen's cousin, Ebenezer, made the first settlement on South Hero. From his tavern, Ethan, one of the "heroes" for whom the islands were named, started homeward across the ice to Burlington, Feb. 11, 1789. Stricken enroute, the Green Mountain Boy died the next day. Site: 3.5 miles south.

As indicated, Ebenezer's tavern was some miles south of this spot, at what is known today as Allen's Point.
