The site of Keeler Tavern has been a farmhouse, tavern, stagecoach stop, post office, hotel for travelers and the home of noted architect Cass Gilbert. In 1966, a group of interested residents in Ridgefield decided to preserve its rich history and established it as a nonprofit museum.The Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center is dedicated to assisting visitors, students, and scholars in understanding significant lives and events during the site’s 300-year history, including their meaning for citizenship and culture now and in the future. We pursue this mission by preserving and protecting the museum’s physical and intellectual assets and sharing them with the widest possible audience, whether on our campus or through outreach programs.
