About Two Tannery Restaurant

The building at "Two Tannery Road" is quite authentically old; and as with most old buildings, it has a unique history to mirror its charm. In the late 1700's, the building was moved, stick by stick, from Marlboro, Massachusetts and is reputedly the oldest frame building in the town of Dover. It was then situated on the lower acreage of what used to be the "Snowbrook Inn" and was then known as the "Grout Place". In the early 1900's, the property was bought by President Theodore Roosevelt's son and daughter-in-law. She has vividly recounted her family's adventures there (including bear hunting) in her biography. According to local residents with keen memories, and to TR's granddaughter, who has been our guest, President Roosevelt himself was known to have come here as a retreat. Often arriving unannounced at the old railway station (now Deerfield Valley Supply in Wilmington) he would be given a ride by one of the local residents. In the early 1940's, the Roosevelt family sold the property to Mr. Lincoln Haynes of Wilmington (of Vermont Barnboard Fame) and the "Two Tannery Road" building was moved yet again - this time on rollers during a winter blizzard, to its present location. The site had been home to several sawmills and a tannery, thus, its present name.
