200-year-old tavern dismantled, moved

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- A 200-year-old tavern was moved in its entirety from Massachusetts to Connecticut. Hundreds of pieces of the nine-room Woodbury Tavern that had been stored in a barn behind Paul Bourdon's Southborough home were trucked about 100 miles to Guilford, Connecticut, on Saturday. The building dates to 1808. In 2006, Bourdon bought and dismantled it, hoping to rebuild it for use as a home. But the project proved too costly and time-consuming.
