Jones Tavern

-- located at 128 Main Street, Acton MA

Jones Tavern 1890Purchased in 1964, by the Iron Work Farm in Acton, the main part of the Tavern, originally home to the Jones family of South Acton, was built in 1732 as a house for Samuel Jones, Jr.
By 1750 it had become a tavern and general store. It is speculated to be the first store in Acton and holds the distinction of being the town’s longest established business, merging into James Tuttle’s store in 1845 and operating under various names until 1950.
