Constructed in 1810, this 12 room colonial with nine fireplaces is one of the oldest standing structures in the town of Londonderry. In its early years, it served as the original homestead of the prominent Dr. Watson. In the late 1800′s it was converted to a tavern and served as a stagecoach stop known then as Plummer’s Tavern. They welcomed guests traveling between Boston and Concord on Mammoth Road and between Nashua and Exeter on old Dunstable Road, now Route 102. Guests were greeted in the “Common Room” located in the northwest corner of the original house. Marks on the wide pine flooring show signs of where the original bar was located. High to the right of the fireplace is a small square cupboard known as “The Parson’s Cupboard” where the most select liquors are said to have been stored. In 1990, the property was purchased by The McDonough Family and operated as The Homestead for twenty years. Today, The Steve McDonough Family and dedicated staff open their doors as “The Coach Stop Restaurant and Tavern”. Offering you a glimpse of the past while serving fine food and beverage.
