The Old Stagecoach Stop, built in the 1850’s, is a 10-room museum. Each room is restored to a different usage or era in the building’s history. The facility has been a stage stop and tavern on the Wire Road between St. Louis and Springfield; a hospital during the Civil War; a hotel; a dentist’s office; and a boarding house for workers building Fort Leonard Wood in 1941.
Tour guides reveal the history of the building, which tells much of the story of the growth and development of Pulaski County.
Normally open only on Saturdays, the Old Stagecoach Stop throws open its doors to Welcome the National Speleological Society Convention in July. The Museum will be open Tuesday, July 14th and Thursday, July 16th from 5-8 pm.
There is no admission fee, but donations are gladly accepted.
The public is invited, and encouraged, to tour the Old Stagecoach Stop during this time.
