Are you ready for this month’s “History Mystery”?


The answer to the last History Mystery (Where is this Webster building?): The Webster Museum at 18 Lapham Park in the Village of Webster.


For this month’s “History Mystery,” read the historical background of this building to see if you can guess what it is today.


Historical Background


Stagecoaches were the first public transportation in Webster, traveling at a speed of 6 mph.


Main Street was a dirt road and people paid money to be stagecoach passengers.


The Stagecoach Inn was the first frame building; other houses were log cabins.


This building had 10 bedrooms and two dining rooms where stagecoach passengers stopped for a bite to eat and a place to stay.


The Stagecoach Inn burned down in 1969 and the building that took its place was built the same year.
