Highland Hall House (site)

60 East Main Street
Frostburg, MD 21532

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

The leading taverns of Frostburg in the palmy days of the road were the 'Franklin House' and the 'Highland Hall House.' The Highland Hall House was conducted at different times by George W. Claybaugh, George Evans, Samuel Cessna and Thomas Porter. It was the headquarters of the Stockton line of coaches. About the year 1850 the Highland Hall House was purchased by the authorities of the Catholic church, remodeled, improved and converted to ecclesiastical uses.

From the Frostburg Comprehensive Plan (2011):

The Stockton Stagecoach Company began operations on the ridge in 1818. In 1819 Meshach Frost, then patriarch of the Frost family, rented a Frost-constructed building to Stockton that operated as a tavern and inn and was known as Highland Hall.
