Noland's second historical building to be reconstructed was an 18th Century Ordinary.  This 1789 tavern was moved from Prospect in Prince Edward County and rebuilt on the site of a previous tavern. 


During it's life as a tavern:

  • lodging was six pence per night

  • dinner cost one shilling1, six pence

  • breakfast cost one shilling, three pence

  • if one had a horse, pasturage amounted to six pence per night, corn and oats were seven and 1/2 pence per gallon and fodder was one piece per bundle

  • English currency was still in circulation in those days


1A shilling was one-twentieth of a pound, and it took 12 pence to equal a shilling.
