Built in the 1850s, the Old Stagecoach Stop 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.
