Deer Tavern

The Deer Tavern stood on Deer Street, a short distance up the hill from Market Street.

Built by a merchant named John Newmarch, the public house had a deer sign hanging outside. It was this sign that inspired the name Deer Street. In the picture below, the Deer Tavern is the second building from the left.

The Deer Tavern was demolished years ago, and the location is now home to some fine shops and condominiums.
