1800-01

The inn was built 1800-01 by Peter Wickerham,
a Revolutionary War veteran. It was used as
an overnight stagecoach stop and tavern on
Zane's Trace until ca. 1850. Runaway slaves were
hidden here when the "Underground Railroad" was
in operation. Confederate soldiers, commanded
by General John Hunt Morgan, slept in the inn
on the night of July 15, 1863, when "Morgan's
Raiders" passed through Adams County.
