Regarding Reynold's Tavern. According to the Reynold's Tavern website (now a Bed and Breakfast): William Reynolds, hatter and dry goods salesman, leased the glebe land adjacent to Franklin Street and Church Circle from St. Anne’s Church in 1747, and constructed the Tavern from which he conducted his hat business, rented rooms and operated an ‘ordinary’ (a tavern) which served hot and cold food and liquor to visitors. ‘The Beaver and Lac’d Hat’ as the Tavern was known, provided a meeting place for farmers, gentlemen, merchants and soldiers. Here one could eat, drink, leave messages, buy theater tickets, conduct business and trade, stable horses and have a game of cards, chess or backgammon. Among others the Corporation of the City of Annapolis and the Mayors court regularly met at the tavern.
