Lucas's Tavern

Built around 1818, Lucas’s Tavern was described as “the most celebrated inn on the Federal Road” and hosted a variety of people, including the Marquis de Lafayette in 1825. Constructed as a two-room dogtrot with a large open hallway in the middle, Lucas’s Tavern was expanded to include two additional rooms after the open hallway was enclosed. It was one of many taverns hosting travelers on the Old Federal Road. It now resides at Old Alabama Town in Montgomery and is part of the Living Block tour.
