Being only 12 mile from the city of Uniontown, this tavern probably had fewer overnight guests. The tavern was most well known for its food. When the coach stopped here to change horses, travelers could come into the barroom to get something to drink, or perhaps come into the parlor, where they could rest and talk with the locals.
If they took on a meal, it was eaten in a common dining room, where they would be served a general meal. They would not be given a menu, or sit at a private table. They ate quickly, because they didn’t know when their stagecoach would be refitted with new horses and be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.
There are seven rooms upstairs. They were likely used for both travelers, and tavern employees. The 1850 census lists 13 people living in the tavern, including the Innkeeper, stage drivers, and house keepers
