Moses Black is back.
In name, at least.
Bardstown’s newest bar was once the “genteel home of Moses Black,” as it was referred to in an 1831 announcement, named after a tavern keeper and coppersmith in 19th century Bardstown. Since then it has been many things, including a tavern and stagecoach stop, a pool hall (twice), a sporting goods store and a bookstore.
On Saturday, the building located on the east side of North Third starts its next chapter, with the opening of Moses Black Tavern.
