Thanksgiving at Buckhorn Inn

 

Happy Thanksgiving

When someone mentions “Thanksgiving” we may think offeasting, football games, and four-day weekends.  The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 by the surviving Mayflower Pilgrims and Native Americans.  George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1789, Abraham Lincoln set it on the last Thursday in November in 1863, and Congress sanctioned it as a legal holiday in 1941.

What began as a simple expression of gratitude for survival has become deeply rooted in American tradition.  Generations of families have added their customs to this annual celebration.  At Buckhorn Inn it is a time to reflect on the family, friends, and good fortune that permeate our lives.  Our traditions include a devilishly hard Thanksgiving quiz and a bountiful buffet!  Here are some of the delicious dishes guests will find on the menu this year:
