Mention of “New Stone Brew-House” in 1765

Owen Aston advertised the White Horse Tavern for sale. He described the property comprised of “150 acres of choice land, 20 acres of which is extraordinary meadow, and well watered; also a very good orchard; there is every conveneincy for a public house of entertainment; a very good stone dwelling house; a large stone stable; wooden shed, barn, and a new stone brew-house, etc.”

The location of the stone brew-house is unknown, however, perhaps what has been described as the ice house which is mostly underground and made of wonderful stone was mislabeled.
