Contractor J.H. Lynch remounts a historical marker by the service station across Mass. Ave from the Calvary Methodist Church earlier today.

With the relevant sidewalk completed, workers today restored the granite monument marking the site of the former Black Horse Tavern on Mass. Ave.

The marker is inscribed.

The site of the
Black Horse Tavern, where met the
Committee of Safety
in 1775.

The marker, all that remains of the revolutionary-war–era tavern, had been removed for sidewalk work that is moving east along the north side of Mass. Ave. Today it is the site of a service station.

The marker was stored on sight during sidewalk reconstruction.
