Relocated to and restored on this corner in Old Alabama Town in 1980. It’s original location was East Montgomery County, near Waugh, where it had been built in 1818 as a wayside hotel and tavern. Supposedly it hosted the Marquis de Lafayette in 1825. In 1845 the structure became a residence, and still later it became a storage building. This is declared to be the oldest standing building in Montgomery County. Today it serves as tourist center and gateway to Landmark’s paid-admission compound behind it. If you visit, be careful because it is considered by some to be haunted!
