Come Experience The Golden Ball Tavern Museum

All Golden Ball Tavern tours are guided by our knowledgeable and experienced docents who share the history of the house and its stories through time – for example, what was the story behind the Latten Spoons found hidden in the Tavern’s foundation? Or, why did Paul Revere malign the Jones family by labeling them “Tories” after stopping at the Tavern for breakfast with his men in 1771? Ample time is allowed for questions, fun and further discussion.

Visit during a Second Sunday Open House. These are held on the second Sunday of each month from 1-3 pm, January through November.

Our December Holiday Open House will be held on December 8th from 1-3 pm. The Holiday Open House is a 50-year tradition featuring themed holiday decorations courtesy of the Country Garden Club of Weston. This is a popular local event that captivates visitors with breathtaking interpretive arrangements as well as the sights, sounds and scents of the holidays. On the same evening we host our much loved Member’s Wassail. Join today and see for yourself why this is a much loved tradition.

… Yesterday, with family visiting from California and Chicago, we toured the Golden Ball Tavern. I had never been and it is so interesting. The preservation of seven layers of history (all the way back to 1760) of wallpaper and paint…and mystery staircases. Well, the story is long and wow, can you imagine 11 kids or 13 which were the first two generations of the Jones family? No thank you, the hockey carpool must have been intense.

You can come see the Tavern on any given Second Sunday, from 1-3 pm, or they are happy to set up private tours for groups. It’s a treasure, that is for sure.”
