In the early days in our country, people traveled on horseback. Roads built between major settlements as Boston and New York became known as Post Roads. The Boston Post Road was one of the first major highways in the United States. There were many taverns where travelers could stop for the evening to eat, drink and rest overnight. As better roads were constructed, two and four wheeled chaises and stagecoaches appeared. Some of the finest stagecoaches were built in Concord, New Hampshire.
