Captain Joseph Root was one of the founders of the town of Montague. He built the first house in the town, and that structure became the temporary meeting place for town and church. In the mid-to-late 1700’s, The M. Root Tavern welcomed guests traveling by stagecoach along the busy King’s Highway. Presently, the house stands proud, its history apparent in its structure and original indoor design, paneling and floors. Step onto the back porch and breathe in the tranquility of this quiet, expansive corner lot with artistic plantings, then move inside to experience the character that 281 years have created. Nine rooms offer space for comfortable family living and gatherings, or short-term rental situations. If you value historical connections, and understand period homes, this historically important property is worthy of your consideration.
