Eat Breakfast with the President

Guess Who’s Coming to Breakfast at the Folsom Tavern?
George Washington returns November 7

Exeter, NH…President George Washington visited Exeter on November 4, 1789, and had a light breakfast, known as a collation, at the Folsom Tavern. On Saturday, November 7, history will repeat itself as Mr. Washington returns to greet local families as they enjoy Mrs. Folsom’s flapjacks!

“This is such a fun event; it really appeals to families,” said Stephanie Rohwer, Programs and Visitor Services Coordinator at the American Independence Museum. “We’ll have two sessions on November 7, and children will be able to meet the President, have breakfast in the tavern, make a craft and then take a child-friendly tour of the Ladd-Gilman House.”

Sessions will be at 10 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.; each session, with the tour, will run approximately 90 minutes. Prepaid registrations are necessary as seating is limited and the cost is $10 for adults, $8 for children. Museum members are offered a $2 per person discount. To make reservations, call 603-772-2622, email or sign-up online from the museum’s Calendar page. Please note that online registrations are subject to confirmation and depend on availability.

The American Independence Museum, located at One Governors Lane in Exeter, New Hampshire, is a nonprofit organization with a mission to “Connect America’s Revolutionary Past with the Present.” For directions or more information on the museum and its programs, visit
