The Black Tavern in Dudley, Massachusetts is presently the only building in Dudley on the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Buildings. Three structures make up The Black Tavern; the Tavern, the annex/shop, and the Barn. The Black Tavern Historical Society (BTHS) was established in 1983 by an extremely dedicated group of preservation-minded local residents in order to save the Tavern, which was in imminent danger of being demolished.
The original structure was built in 1804 by Hezekiah Healy and opened as Healy's Inn. Hezekiah had married Becca Corbin in 1798 and was a cabinetmaker and a captain in the local militia company. The local residents began calling his inn The Black Tavern since Hezekiah had painted the building black.
