Shelburne’s folk art collection, the finest and most diverse in the country, is exhibited in Stagecoach Inn. Works including cigar store figures, trade signs, ship’s carvings, weather vanes, and American folk art paintings are displayed throughout the galleries.
Stagecoach Inn was built in Charlotte, Vermont in 1783. Its regularly spaced windows flanking a central door with sidelights reflect the Georgian style popular in 18th-century America. The house features 10 fireplaces, a second-floor ballroom, and a broad wrap-around porch. The structure was moved to the Museum in 1949.
