History on Tap: Historic Taverns of Prince William County

Grab your favorite brew and join us as we take a virtual trip through the historic taverns of Prince William County.

Taverns were once one of the most important places in American daily life. A combination of restaurant, bar, and hotel, taverns were a popular place for both locals and travelers. Join local historian Bill Backus as he explores the history of taverns in Prince William County, including some that you can visit today!

About the library

Montclair Library serves a bustling suburban community in eastern Prince William County. With large glass windows and a stone terrace suited for outdoor performances, the LEED-certified building offers inviting spaces for children, young adults, and adults, including 22 public access computers, a PS4 gaming station, a Digital Media Lab, and a fireplace in the reading room.

Library grounds are also home to a restored 19th century historic property known as the Barnes House, an important part of the county’s rich African-American heritage.

Montclair’s community room offers seating for up to 100 people and a large-screen TV for presentations. There are four group study rooms. An individual quiet study room is also available on a first-come, first-served basis.
