About John Miles, Sr.

The drawing to the left depicts the old tavern as it likely looked at the time that John Harriman’s son-in-law, John Miles, ran the tavern starting in 1703, and from that point the place was known as the Miles Tavern. In 1701, New Haven became co-capital of Connecticut and the General Assembly came to the tavern for board and drink. In 1754, Isaac Beers continued as innkeeper here, and the place was then known as the Beers Tavern. In 1778, Beers opened a bookstore and kept a general store here. He rented the upstairs rooms to students and other ordinary people.
