Political intrigue, tavern life and a family home - all available in a single visit to this site on the corner of West Market Street and North Pershing Avenue in downtown York. These three buildings reflect both private and public lives in early York. The Golden Plough Tavern, built in 1741, presents the significant role a tavern played in a community as hotel, restaurant and source for news. The General Gates House (c.1751) reflects the year 1778 when General Horatio Gates occupied the house while the Continental Congress met in York. You can visit a reconstruction of the Colonial Court House just across the street from the Golden Plough Tavern. The Barnett Bobb Log House, built with squared timbers, shows family life in the 1830s. Guided tours are offered Tues. - Sat. 10, 11, 1, 2, and 3:00.
