About the history of

DAVELUY'S RESTAURANT

History

WE HAVE BEEN AROUND
FOREVER

The history of Daveluy’s Restaurant goes back to the 1700s when the building was located at the foot of Academy Hill on Main Street near land and was owned by Noah Judd and his son. 
 
The place was frequently visited by tradesmen from New Haven, Goshen, Albany, and as far north as Vermont. You can read about its popularity in Connecticut in a book called “Watertown, Then and Now.”

THE LONG LIST OF ITS OWNERS

The tavern was first sold to a local farmer and merchant called James Bishop, which was then purchased by one of his visitor and guest, General Merrit Heminway, in 1840 and moved to its current location “Echo Lake Road.” He converted it to a boarding place for the employees of his factory. 

 
Joseph Daveluy who was from Canada purchased the place in the 1920s and added a large dining room to the structure to open a restaurant. But it was not until 1932 that he transformed the place into a local hot spot to eat, drink, and relax. He then sold it to Matt Deziel after running it for almost 90 years.
