Stories Made Here
As a resident here, you’ll have an opportunity to add your story to centuries of other notable stories that make up the unique history of The Tannery.
In the early 1800s, the first tannery was opened by Isaac Broadhead and Edward Hubbard. In 1886, it was bought by Herman Roser, whose family had been tanners in Germany since 1695. The Roser family quickly became known for their high-quality craftsmanship, providing fine leather for U.S. Cavalry saddles, limousine upholstery, bookbinding, and more. Finally, in 1968, the Flanagan family took ownership. All of these families’ contributions as artisans, business owners and citizens will be depicted in memorabilia at The Beamhouse, serving as a reminder of the bold, innovative spirit that embodies this particular spot in Glastonbury.
