Save the Stagecoach Inn sign now

Save the Stagecoach Inn! The Stagecoach Inn built in 1816 has stood on the corner of Buffalo Road and Union Street in North Chili, New York for 190 years. Maude Development, L.L.C. and Walgreens are planning to erect a 14,000 + square foot Walgreen drug store on this corner and demolish the Stagecoach Inn for a handful of parking spaces and some landscaping. There is enough room for both buildings to exist.


The Stagecoach Inn is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. It was an early stagecoach stop, inn, tavern and post office. In 1867 B.T. Roberts founded the Chili Seminary, the very first Free Methodist educational institution in the U.S. The Stagecoach Inn should stand as a museum to educate future generations about;


The temperance movement, North Chili was a dry town for about 100 years.


Abolitionists and the role of religious groups in the operation of the Underground Railroad. The Free Methodists were staunch abolitionists.


Womens Rights, B.T. Roberts wrote a book entitled Ordaining Women in 1891.


The beginnings of the Free Methodist Church, a branch of the Methodist Church that broke away from the church pew rental system.


Farmers rights and national economic reform were also promoted by B.T. Roberts in his writings.


The Stagecoach Inn has been waiting 190 years to tell its storydont let Maude Development and Walgreens take that away from us! We strongly urge that the Stagecoach Inn be placed on the National Register of Historic Places and be made available for historic preservation to ensure that the Stagecoach Inn stands for another 190 years.

    This petition is a futile gesture, but I'll sign anyway. Chili should have done something to save this building a long time ago. I think its too late now.

    This structure has national significance and a compromise can and should be reached so that both the building can be saved and Walgreens can build their store.
