Dills Tavern Oysterfest
Today, the many buildings of Dills Tavern and Plantation have come to tell not only the history of Dillsburg, but also the story of life on Pennsylvania's frontier and a slice of our nation's history. These insights continue through our continuing archeological investigations and restoration projects.
During the digs, one item far outnumbered any other in terms of quantity found on the property, oyster shells.
Further investigation discovered that the oysters were part of trade for the products made by the property's distillery. Oysters came to the property from Baltimore in the empty barrels that were frequently sent to quench the thirsts of the burgeoning shipping metropolis.
Come celebrate our local tradition of oysters and community at Dills Tavern and Plantation.
