Streeper's Ordinary tavern of Narbeth Pennsylvania.
On 9/12-9/13 1777 Washington stayed here as the army regrouped from the Battle of Brandywine. The army straggled in and refitted.

The tavern owners, misters Streeper and Oridinary had good fare.

The tavern became the General Wayne Inn, seen. It fell on hard times and was bought for use as a Jewish Community Center. I ran into a young Rabbi who was very enthusiastic about the building showing me all he could before he had to go to service.
