Old Blue Bell Inn
Old Blue Bell Inn postcard

By the close of the 19th century, citizens voted to ban 'the sale of intoxicating liquors in the town,' thus bringing to a close the days of Milton taverns. The Blue Bell, originally the headquarters of the Granite Railway, was one of the last Milton taverns to close its doors.  The East Milton Post Office now sits on the site.
