Munroe tavern Laura Muzzey Brigham ZDLTK152052429381X
This is a character voice that will be used a short audio segment that will be exhibited at Munroe Tavern, in Lexington MA. The tavern, now a house museum operated by the Lexington Historical Society, was visited by George Washington in November of 1789, and this piece will play in the room where he had dinner that night.
Laura Muzzey Brigham was the grand-daughter of Anna Munroe, one of three teenage sisters who served General Washington upon his visit. In 1912, when she was 76 years, Laura Muzzey Brigham recalled her grandmother’s description of that day. This is the voice of an older New England woman at the turn of the century, full of sparkle and good humor.

In 1912, when she was 76 years, Laura Muzzey Brigham recalled her grandmother’s description of that day. This is the voice of an older New England woman at the turn of the century, full of sparkle and good humor.
When Washington came to the Tavern, my grandmother was eighteen years old. (She) carried the food up to the room where Washington’s dinner was served. She said:
“Marm told me if I spilt anything, Mr. Washington wouldn’t have anything to do with me.”
After Washington and his party left, Mrs. Munroe called the children to the remains of the feast.
My grandmother told me: “It seemed too holy for us to touch. We thought him such a great man; but Marm said: ‘He didn’t eat this’ and I said: ‘But he looked at it.’ ”
The Washington chair is the one he sat in. My grandmother put us in that chair, and told us: “Never tell a lie after sitting in that chair.”
Laura Muzzey Brigham, 1913
