Details

This late-1800s Concord Coach was built by Abbot-Downing Stagecoach Company and historically served as the coach for the Turner House hotel and later on Turner’s Tavern Bethlehem, N.H. At the turn of the last century, Turner’s Tavern was a moderately sized summer hotel. This red and yellow carriage features black leather interior with three rows of seats and three additional roof seats. Red and gold block letters read “Turner’s Tavern” on the roof, and gold leaf and black letters read “Tally-Ho/No 1” at the rear. The lower body of the coach features multicolored scrolling. The Adirondack Historical Society Museum has been the caretaker of this lovely piece of transportation history since the late 1950s. A surviving example of the stage coaches that transported visitors to various locations within the White Mountains region of New Hampshire, this coach is accompanied by documentation to support its authenticity. A 1956 survey by Paul H. Downing, in July of 1956 states that “the original paint, scroll decorations and pictures on the body appear to be in very good condition.”
