The Barre Stagecoach is an awe-inspiring wonder—at 9 feet tall, 15 feet long and 6 feet wide, it could hold as many as 12 passengers inside. During the mid- to late-1800s, stagecoaches were the primary mode of transportation throughout the state, carrying both passengers and mail. Barre was the center of north/south travel, with stage lines running from Worcester through Paxton, Rutland, Oakham and Coldbrook to Barre and on to Petersham and Athol. Later, coach lines ran to Greenfield and into Vermont and New Hampshire.
