This paper will attempt to point out the comments or the various travellers in Virginia concerning the functions of public houses from 1750 to lP.12. The travellers as individuals had their prejudices, inaccuracies, and contradictions, but their remarks, on tho other hand, help to give a valuable on the scene picture of this area of early Virginia history. Traveller's comments on hospitality and transportation, two areas which greatly influenced the state's public houses, will also be included to form e better perspective, and on occasion laws, newspapers and other articles will be used to clarify and expend various topics mentioned by the travellers.
