John Peterson,

I saw your listing and looked it up in a book I have. Samuel Peterson's Tavern was on the corner of Front and Main Street in Binghamton. The book shows a picture. It was a popular stage coach stop in the early 1800's, and it was the place the important people of that time met to form the first government for the Binghamton area. The tavern burned in 1859.
The person you migh want to speak with would be Gerald R. Smith. He's the local historian doing work out of the Binghamton Public Library. If he isn't there they probably could tell you where to find him.
I hope this helps.

Sue Wagner
