Additional Details:
one of Huntsville's earliest hostelries, was located on Meridan Pike on site now occupied by Alabama A & M. Built in 1815 by John Connelly, the inn attained widespread fame for its adjoining race track, over which many of the outstanding race horses of the period completed. Gen. Andrew Jackson, an avid folleower of the sport, often stopped here to race his horses and fight his cocks. For many years the table where he dined was preserved
