From the museum at the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution:
The Georgia room is modeled after a room from Peter Tondee’s tavern in Savannah, Georgia. The tavern, no longer standing, was in business from 1770-1785. Objects seen in the room are based on Tondee’s probate inventory. Taverns fulfilled numerous functions providing food, drink, lodging, and rooms for entertainment and meetings. Tondee’s tavern served as a meeting place for the “Sons of Liberty”, and was the site of the raising of the first Liberty Pole and the first reading of the Declaration of Independence in Georgia. After Peter Tondee’s death, his widow, Lucy Mouse Tondee, operated the tavern until 1783. (NSDAR Museum, Virtual Tour of Peter Tondee’s Tavern)

Photo of a Photo of the Liberty Tree, Originally uploaded by Robert Pollack.
On Saint John’s College campus in Annapolis, Maryland there was a great spreading tulip poplar tree that stood for hundreds of years until 1999. It was the last “Liberty Tree” where the Sons of Liberty gathered to talk about sedition. The tree was severely damaged during a hurricane and ceremoniously cut down.
