Having survived the 1831 fire, it is believed to be the oldest existing structure in the city. It was named so because of its proximity to the spring of that name. In 1789, the tavern housed the state delegates that were in town for the state convention to ratify the U.S. Constitution. The building is designed in the Federal style.
