old barroom, kitchen and dining room of this once noted tavern are well pre-
served; also the old sigTi of the Indian and his arrows, though it no longer
invites the traveler to rest. Here were seen the old tester bedsteads with blue
and white linen hangings such as some of us now cherish as the handiwork of
our grandmothers. From the porch views of river, hills and meadows of great
beauty are obtained, and pleasure seekers much frequent this locality. Trow-
bridge's creek reaches the river just below."t He was elected poor-master of the
township in 1813. Willingborough was named Great Bend in 1814, and on
