Did you know?

Did you know that people traveling the Old National Pike stayed at numerous overnight stops along the road?
These stops held many different names, such as tavern, inn, hotel, hostelry and stage stop. 

The overnight stops sold food and drinks, and the horses were fed. 

The travelers got “sleeping space” until all the beds were filled to capacity, at which time they got “floor space.”
