Now converted to a residence, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in ; the former Stagecoach Inn stands facing south toward Fern Lake Road, just east of its junction with US 7, across which Leicester's small town center is located. Its most distinctive exterior feature is the two-story from porch, recessed under the main roof; the porch is supported by Doric columns with differing details on the second floors.
The main entrance is at the center of the five-bay facade, flanked by sidelight windows and pilasters , with a porch entrance directly above which has similar pilasters. An integral ell extends to the rear of the building.
Both the main block and ell retain original features on the interior, including woodwork and door hardware, fireplace surrounds, stencilwork on the walls; the structure's construction date is uncertain, but it was begun before , intended to be a retail store.

Mary and her husband Jacob Haller, the town's first postmaster , built the stately room Greek Revival inn along the road from Houston to Austin, where some of Texas' first stagecoach lines, the Smith and Jones , the F.
Sawyers, would stop for the night.
Prior to the building's use as a stagecoach stop, it served as a boarding house for students attending college in Chappell Hill. At that time it was called Hargrove House Hotel. Charlotte Hargrove, Mary Haller's mother, operated the Inn until John A. Hargrove, Mary's brother, wrote shortly before his death in of traveling to "the Cedar breaks" to cut wood for building the inn.
Throughout this period, the town of Chappell Hill was a part of a booming cotton-farming economy; as the cotton economy faded after the turn of the 20th century and highways were built bypassing the town, the Inn fell into disrepair, until it was purchased in by noted Houston architect Harvin C.
Moore and his wife Elizabeth. Moore had seen the Inn while traveling in the s, to and from Austin as a student and member of the Rice University band, had dreamed of one day bringing it back to life.
At the completion of the Moores' restoration, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places ; the Inn continued to be operated as a breakfast for many years.
However, the property was put up for sale in , the Inn's website is no longer available. The inn served the needs of travellers, for food and rest; the attached stables, staffed by hostlers, cared for the horses, including changing a tired team for a fresh one.
Coaching inns were used by private travellers in their coaches, the public riding stagecoaches between one town and another, the mail coach.
Just as with roadhouses in other countries, although many survive, some still offer overnight accommodation, in general coaching inns have lost their original function and now operate as ordinary pubs.
Now the highly anticipated fight is official and sportsbooks such as BetOnline have been accepting wagers on this upcoming bout.
Coaching inns stabled teams of horses for stagecoaches and mail coaches and replaced tired teams with fresh teams. Traditionally they were seven miles apart but this depended much on the terrain; some English towns had as many as ten such inns and rivalry between them was intense, not only for the income from the stagecoach operators but for the revenue for food and drink supplied to the passengers.
Barnet , Hertfordshire still has an unusually high number of historic pubs along its high street due to its former position on the Great North Road from London to the North of England. There were many coaching inns in; the only remaining one with the galleries to the bedrooms above is The George Inn , owned by the National Trust and still run as a pub.
Many have been demolished and plaques mark their location; the Nomura building close to the Museum of London on London Wall commemorates the "Bull and Mouth" Inn.
The Black Lion in Cardigan is the oldest Welsh coaching inn. A pair of coaching inns alongside the former A5 road or the old Roman road Watling Street in Stony Stratford , named respectively'The Cock' and'The Bull', are said to have given rise to the term "cock and bull stories.
Hence any suspiciously elaborate tale would become a bull story. This is a bull story in itself, however; the phrase, first recorded in , may instead be an allusion to Aesop's fables, with their incredible talking animals.
As this predates coaching inns, the names of the two inns could have been a reference to " Cock and Bull stories" as to encourage the passing of such anecdotes within their doors.
