Step back into the past and experience what it was like to dine in an authentic stagecoach inn that was once located in the heart of the Genesee Country.
The Sylvester Hosmer Inn, built in 1818 on the Ontario and Genesee Turnpike, a few miles west of the Genesee River near Avon (but now located in the museum’s Historic Village), is now serving traditional tavern dinners on select weekend days in spring (May/June) and fall (September/October) or reserve an Afternoon Tea.
To reserve a Hosmer Inn Dinner or Afternoon Tea, call (585) 294-8218.
Each evening’s private dining experience can accommodate up to a maximum of 15 people.
All dinners are $75/person ($70/members) and begin promptly at 6 p.m.
Hosmer Inn dinners sell out each year; be sure to make your reservation early!
