The Bonnell Tavern has been under-utilized for many years. Windows have been broken and boarded up with plywood since the 1960’s. The roof has been repaired and patched for 60 years to keep water out of the structure. Rainwater is the most damaging natural element. The following pictures show the condition of the house before the restoration began in December 2019.
