About Capt. Ebenezer Byram

They moved to Morris Co., NJ and built the famous Black Horse Inn in 1745. It is still being used, Mendham, NJ. From "Through the Years in Mendham Borough" by Catherine M. Emmons, Page 69 - "The Black Horse Inn was originally used as a farm house in the very early years and according to a builder's opinion, the foundation suggests that it wasn't intended to be used as a public building. In 1740, the building was purchased by Ebenezer Byram, who was one of the very early settlers in Mendham, NJ. Mr. Byram opened this building as a guest house for some of the early travelers and it later became a tavern. Through the years, this building has kept on with the same type of business, that being the selling of "Spirits." In the early years, the Black Horse Inn was used as a polling place for the elections. Records show that in the year of the great blizzard of 1888, the polling place was located in this building.
