Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Roger Mowry Tavern (also known as the Roger Mowry House or Olney House) was a historic stone ender house, built around 1653, in Providence, Rhode Island. It was the oldest house in Providence, Rhode Island until it was demolished in 1900.Roger Mowry, an early settler in Providence, built the house around 1653 according to research by Norman Isham. Mowry was a constable and operated the only tavern in the town. The tavern also served as a government meeting place, church, and jail. The Mowry Tavern was allegedly one of only five buildings not burned by the Indians during King Philip's War because Roger Williams, a friend of the Indians, held Christian worship services there. The house was located on Abbott Street adjacent to North Burial Ground and was demolished in 1900 so a triple decker tenement house could be constructed on its site.
