Our tour guides will lead tours through the house and tell stories of the Jones family, our revolutionary history and answer your questions about the museum.


The Golden Ball Tavern was established and operated by prominent Weston resident, Isaac Jones. Isaac was a Loyalist turned Patriot and faced a dilemma not unlike those we face today. The tavern "at the sign of the Golden Ball" operated as an inn from 1770 to 1793 and played a pivotal role in the unfolding of the Revolutionary War. The house and Tavern were later occupied and carefully preserved for 200 years by six generations of the Jones family.


The Golden Ball Tavern is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is entirely self-sustaining
