Built in 1768 on the Boston Post Road in Weston, the Golden Ball Tavern was the home of Isaac Jones, prominent Weston resident. He had built the house to be both his home as well as a tavern, and the tavern "at the sign of the Golden Ball" operated as an inn from 1770 to 1793. From then on, for six generations - over 200 years - it was occupied by members of the Jones family until it was acquired by the Golden Ball Tavern Trust in the 1960's.


Here history still lives and breathes, telling the story of change through time. Come explore this unique Revolutionary era tavern and learn of "the spies who went out in the cold", the "other" tea party, and the eventful visit of Paul Revere's men.
