BRIEF HISTORY:

 

Our original building was built in the 1830’s as a 3 bedroom house. That house was where our 2 large dining rooms are located in the back. It was a home for about 100 years. Right after Prohibition was repealed, the building became a Tavern. This was a local gathering place, had a gas pump our front and was called a “Lubritorium.” It was later named The Square Rigger. It sat about 35 people and was purchased by Westbridge Assoc. in 1973, run by Gordon Rose & Jon Rick. While running this restaurant for about 20 years, they revamped the menu and made countless additions to the building. They changed the name to Shaker Mill Tavern in the late 1970’s. In the 1800’s the Tyringham Shakers were quite active in this area. Our pond and mill right here in town were named after them as well. With a new venue, food offerings and amazing entertainment that they brought in locally and from the city, the restaurant became a favorite of many “locals” as well as tourists as it became a well known destination. The Shaker Mill hosted a great number of weddings, parties and functions, as well. Please enjoy a collection of vintage posters that we have on display.

 

The restaurant closed in 1995. Dominick Luchi opened it back up on May 1st, 2009 and revived the building and restaurant. It was then closed only briefly, from September 1st, 2013 to June 6th, 2014. Jim and Jenni Roy Hallock bought the restaurant on June 1st 2016. Jim worked with Dominick for about 2 months to make a seamless transition, never closing. The goal was to keep many dishes & recipes the same, while adding Jim’s original smoked BBQ. Jenni and Jim have 5 children. Shannon, Mary, Caitie, James and Abby are 4th generation West Stockbridge Residents. They all have worked or work here & have helped contribute to the Children’s menu, the Children’s Corner, Shaker Cove, ads and a few new dishes. Jim continues to cater events with his traveling smoker as well.

 

Thank you for coming and contributing to long standing history of our local Tavern in our hometown, The Historic Town of West Stockbridge. 

The Shaker Mill Tavern Family Smoke House is now permanently closed.  Jim, his smoker & his BBQ are now at the Morgan House on Main Street in Lee.  His BBQ soft opening is February 8th for dine in, take out and catering.
