A Rich History Dating Back To 1833
Built as a relay house and stagecoach stop in 1833 by Major John P. Gray, The Stagecoach Inn (originally named Gray’s Inn) served as lodging quarters for distant travelers from across the Midwest. Historical records report that the inn has also been utilized as a civil war hospital, tavern, church, and restaurant.
A Refuge For Famous Figures
Centrally located at the intersection of highway 41 and 79, the Inn provided accommodations for some of the most famous historical figures in our nation. Records found that the infamous outlaw Jesse James was a patron of the Inn. Other noteworthy guests include President Andrew Jackson, Jenny Lind, and Thomas Daly Rice.
The Grueling Journey on the Trail of Tears
On May 28, 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act which authorized lands west of the Mississippi River to be exchanged for land occupied by Native Americans. The Cherokee Native Americans went on a treacherous journey that lasted from November 1838 to March 1839. It is estimated that approximately 4,000 Cherokees died of cold, hunger, and disease during the trip.
Well Of Sweet Water
The Inn was believed to have hosted escorts who lead The Cherokee Indians on the Trail of Tears. It is said that Indian Chief White Path drank from the well and blessed its sweet water. He named the well "Utok Amawah" which means "well of sweet water". A few days later at Hopkinsville, KY, White Path passed away.
200-year-old Trail of Tears Well Uncovered
On August 18, 2021, property owner, Mark Humphreys, uncovered the original Trail of Tears well that was buried 18 inches beneath the replica well. Humphreys shares his excitement about the recent uncovering, "This is a working 200-year-old well. I don’t get everything right, but I feel like I saved history this time. This is a famous stop of Cherokee Indians and I’m honored to be able to share this with the people of Guthrie and the surrounding area."
A Solid Foundation
The town of Guthrie was established around 1840 and was originally a stage stop called Pondy Woods. The town was later renamed the State Line because of its positioning on the Kentucky-Tennessee border. The stage stop was later named after James A. Guthrie, a prominent U.S. Senator, and the railroad's president. Guthrie was officially recognized as a US city in 1876 and opened its first post office in 1868.
