The Golden Horseshoe Inn was built in 1827. It has served many purposes through the years. Originally it served as a Stage Coach Inn for travellers crossing the Swift Run Gap. It was a full day's travel to cross the mountain. Weary travellers would stay the night at the Inn in preperation for the next days journey over the Mountain. Teams of strong horses were stabled here to lead the coaches.
The building features 4 white Jeffersonian columns out front and is built from bricks which were fired on the property. The original wooden plank floors still grace the building and the square headed nails unique to the time period are visible.
