Inscription. Located at this site, James Bell's tavern was a meeting place for Anti-Federalists. Members of the Anti-Federalist movement from the Cumberland frontier, led by Robert Whitehill, met in 1788 to oppose the US Constitution, because it lacked guarantees for individual liberties and states' rights. They demanded amendments. This meeting is linked to the adoption of the Bill of Rights and the founding of the Democratic-Republican Party.
