Blue Bell Inn Print Resembling an Antique Hand Tinted Drawing Art Print
A Museum Quality Art Print of the Blue Bell Inn Resembling an Antique Hand Tinted Drawing for sale by Brandywine General Store. The Blue Bell was built in 1707 and was used for many different purposes over its early history. During the Revolutionary War the business was owned by Philip Lee, Esquire of the city of London. During this period the Commonwealth took over the tavern and it was damaged by the solders. A petition by Lee stated that several valuable buildings and improvements belonging to him in the City of Williamsburg have been occupied by the soldiers as barracks and hospitals, by which they have been damaged in the amount of more than 500 pounds, as will appear by an estimate made by several honest workmen and praying such relief as shall be thought just and reasonable. Taken from the Journals of House of Delegates. This artwork shows the front of the tavern and was made to resemble an antique sketch that was hand colored.
