The Buckhorn Inn has been a landmark since 1811. Back then it was called the Dudley House. In 1854, Professor Thomas Jackson (before he was dubbed Stonewall)and his wife stopped off here on their way to Hot Springs VA. In 1862, after the Civil War Battle of McDowell, many of the wounded were cared for in the Buckhorn. When the Buckhorn was a way station on the stagecoach route it was renowned as a hot spot for high class gambling. Healthy fresh mountain air and famous spas in Warm and Hot Springs attracted travelers from big cities and coastal areas.
It remains as an excellent layover to travelers to Monterey, Bath County, and also Snowshoe, West Virginia.
