Robert A. Geake's monograph examines Rhode Island's historic taverns and sheds light not only on the stories that took place within their walls but also on the distinct role they played in Rhode Island social, political, and cultural history.  Among the highlighted taverns are Mowry Tavern, which was the site of political gatherings, protests and religious observances under Roger Williams; Benedict Arnold Tavern built in 1693; White Horse Tavern, which soon became the meeting place for Rhode Island legislators; and Ruff Stone Tavern in North Providence which served as a pub, a stop on the Underground Railroad and a speakeasy during prohibition.
