Since the early 1700s, the Wayside Inn, located in Sudbury, MA has been plying weary travelers with high priced mugs of grog and chops of mutton. If Bill and Ted needed a stop to gather historical figures, this “hous of entertainment” would be a goldmine. George Washington, The Marquis de Lafayette (no relation to de Sade), Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Henry David Thoreau and others have plunked down their hard-earned coin to gaff a few beverages at the Inn.

The gristmill, which makes up a most of this gallery isn’t old by any stretch of the imagination. It was built by Henry Ford in 1929. That was the same year, good ole’ Henry hijacked the Postville Courthouse from my home town of Lincoln, IL and move it to Michigan.

Actually, the gristmill has an interesting history. Allow me to redirect you the Wayside Inn website for the full details.
