Lucas Tavern

Lucas Tavern

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!
