Our History

The building was built in the early 1920s but the first recorded liquor license was issued to Bill Patton in June of 1935, under the name of Bill's Place. In 1947 Stanley Minakowski move from Brown Town in Wilmington and bought the tavern and renamed it Stanley's Tavern. It very quickly became the meeting for all the locals and travelers passing by. It stayed a small local watering hole until 1972, when Bill Brooks bought the tavern and began what ended up being several additions and renovation, doubling the size of the building while still keeping the local watering hole atmosphere.
