Stephen Stone Tavern aka

Boots' Tavern, and

Peace & Plenty Saloon

Note: Most of the Sussex Brewery’s sales went through the Boots-owned tavern that stood where Sussex Auto, N64 W23936 Main St., is today. In August 1857 it was called the Stone Tavern.

There was a Fred G. Boots, probably a relative, who had a mini saloon on Main Street in Sussex where today Strobel's Sussex Auto is located. In time, this became too small and Fred Boots built a multi-story saloon and home across Main Street where the parking lot sits for Tony Maroni's Pizza today. The name of the saloon was Boot's Saloon and also Peace and Plenty Saloon.

Note: Frederick Grant Boots, b. 1864 in Waukesha County, son of Henry Boots. In 1880 Fed Census, Town of Lisbon, his father was a "Saloon keeper", and Fred was a "bar tender".
