Compass Inn Museum
The Compass Inn started out as a drover's inn along an offshoot of historic Forbes Road near Ligonier, Pennsylvania. By 1820, the structure featured a 'luxurious' stone addition and several outbuildings which helped serve thousands of stagecoach travelers on the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Turnpike, now historic Lincoln Highway/Route 30.
