Bump Tavern is located within the quaint, Historic Village of The Farmers’ Museum. It was built by Jehiel Tuttle in the late 1790s in the village of Ashland, Greene County, New York. Strategically located on the Catskill and Windham Turnpike, the resting spot served cattle drovers and other travelers passing through the area. The tavern was purchased in 1842 by Ephraim Bump. The Tavern was moved to Cooperstown in 1952, where it became part of the Museum’s collection.
