Convenience Meets Comfort
Modern convenience combines with colonial history in Old Town to create a one-of-a-kind lifestyle. You can drop by the Farmer’s Market, a local gathering spot since 1753, or stroll along King Street where fashionable boutiques, cafes, and art galleries occupy Federalist storefronts. For dinner, choose one of Old Town's new critically acclaimed restaurants, or Gadsby’s Tavern, the area’s finest public house for over 200 years. It’s all here in one of the region's most coveted communities.
