Inscription. The Bedingfield Inn or Tavern was constructed on this site in 1836 by Dr. Bryan N. Bedingfield as a family residence and stagecoach stop.

Also known as the "Harrell House," "Cuba House" and "Ard House," it continued as a hotel or boarding house in the 1930's. In 1965, it was purchased by the Stewart County Historical Commission and restored as an 1840 house museum.
