EDGARTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS PROPERTY EST. 1742 The Kelley House opened its doors as a tavern in 1742 and instantly became a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. Over the subsequent decades, the island community grew into a hub of fishing and whaling activity, and the tavern prospered as a welcomed respite for generations of weary sailors. Its classic clapboard exterior and dark wood shutters are hallmarks of 18th-century Greek Revival architecture, and the lobby fireplace and period antique reproductions enhance its colonial heritage. The pub is famous for its wooden nickel tradition by which patrons earn a nickel for each beer that they purchase. Several nickels will reserve them a seat at the bar.
