This building stands on the site of one of the most popular inns of the early stagecoach days. Under it are the ancient handhewn timbers, hand made brick and massive beams of the inn basement. In the basement is the rock vault with heavy iron door and tremendous lock where the gold shipments and mail pouches were kept in safety for the stagecoaches.

Washington people were proud of their stagecoaches. They did not give them up until 1870 — 20 years after the coming of the railroad.
