Timeless Places: A look at sites that make us unique
The Aiken Stand’s main building, built in 1805, was a two-and-a-half story clapboard house, which served as a tavern. Due to its location about midway on the turnpike, the Aiken Stand grew in popularity. In 1817, President Monroe stopped at the stand, and by the time Lafayette arrived, the Aiken Stand was more than just a tavern, it was a thriving inn.
