The tavern was also owned by George Taylor, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and was used as his residence.

It winds through northern mountains and along the banks of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers through northeast Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and through Bucks County.

The Nicholas House has been restored, with furnishings dating from the 1830’s, and is one of few restored structures in the nation that illustrate life at home for a typical working person or family.
