History of the Annual Native American Festival

The annual festival began in 1992 and was moved to Vienna, Maryland in 2005 to bring the celebration closer to their original village sites. The Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians organized the Festival ‘for three reasons: to educate the public and hold onto their culture, raise the self-esteem of their people and raise money for their tribal office and longhouse.’

In 2009, the 17th Annual Native American FestivalCelebration of the Three Eastern Clans - Healing of All Nations‘ was held just around the corner from Tavern House Bed & Breakfast.

Celebrating 30th Year Operating Bed & Breakfast

30 Years of Service

Harvey & Elise Altergott Celebrate Their 30th Year with Bed & BreakfastThe Altergott’s are proud to announce that the Tavern House Bed and Breakfast is celebrating their 30th year in business since opening their doors in October of 1984!Tavern House Bed & Breakfast - Side View

Many travelers and many shared stories and memories are just a couple of reasons Harvey and Elise continue to accept bookings for their 1700’s bed and breakfast.

Desires and Skills

Their combined interests, skills and desires to restore and maintain this historical lodging, which they also call home, is there crowning jewel.

Their earlier achievements include renovating the family home in Montgomery County, Maryland, and construction of a A-Frame cabin as a weekend retreat in the mountains of West Virginia. Their daughters will vouch that there was no road to carry those 2′ x 6′x 12′ up the mountain, pure physical effort was required - preferable without any sass!

The Altergott\'s Renovated this Property at Race and Market StreetsVienna Historical Achievements

Joann\'s House Currently Under Renovation by the Altergott\'s - Summer-2014While running the B & B along with participating in numerous community and civic activities, Harvey and Elise also renovated the Vienna dwelling at the corner of Race Street and Middle Street (image to the left).

Currently, the Altergott’s are restoring/renovating another home referred to as ‘JoAnn’s’ since purchasing the property from the estate of their good friend, JoAnn Ferrell (image on the right).

Functional Artisans

Determination and lots of hard labor are not the only strengths of the Altergotts. Elise’s natural artistic abilities and exceptional eye for details brings together rather typical or usual items to combine them into beautiful and exceptional creations.

30 Years of History & Hospitality

Throughout the years, Elise and Harvey have welcomed people into their home and shared their 1700’s property with passing travelers. Perhaps the doors to the Inn may close one day, but their hearts and minds will always be open to those who pass through Vienna.

It was a good day when Elise and Harvey Altergott found Vienna when just taking the road only to see where it would go.

September 20th - The Winstons

Come on out and let ‘The Winstons: Greatest Motown Review’ take you down memory lane with their memories of Motown and soul revue, featuring the classic hits of the Temptations, The Four Tops, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and other Motown & soul legends.

The Winstons are a funk and soul music outfit from the 1960s who are most notable for recording a track called “Amen, Brother” (a B-side to the single “Color Him Father” edited in 1969). “Amen, Brother” is probably the most sampled record of all time. Midway through the track there is a drum solo which contains the “Amen break ” which has been sampled and used in thousands of hip-hop, drum and bass and jungle tracks.

The Winstons were * G.C. Coleman (vocals, drums) and Richard Spencer (lead vocals, tenor saxophone).
