About Us

We’re Old Brownsburg Store

The original front brick building you’ll be staying in started its life as a guest house for the Wardlaw house, originally built by Robert Wardlaw in 1760 and sold later to the Trotter family. The main house is located just behind our B&B, the beautiful large brick house with the wrap-around porch; our building [‘the old guest house’] later housed three General Stores operated by the Whipples, Supingers, and Swopes, as well as Bud Wade’s Barbershop and Pool Room in the back room – this is located where the kitchen resides now. Most recently, Old South Antiques was housed here, for about 30 years. The building has been tastefully restored, balancing ‘maintaining the original character and charm’ while modernizing the infrastructure (water, electricity, heating & cooling, etc.) Our building, the original Guest House, was built in 1815. The property is unique and special inside and out – enjoy the pictures on our website and more importantly, enjoy your stay – you’ll easily be exploring the building and property for 2-3 days.

Our building is located centrally in Historic Brownsburg and sits directly on the Old Stagecoach road. The property includes a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath facility complete with main living room, full modern kitchen, 2 dining areas inside and 1 on the patio. In addition, enjoy a vintage wine cellar experience which has the feeling of transporting you back in time; complete with a fireplace and sitting area, a wine jail, 3 options for music, and its own entrance to the Old Stagecoach road [route 252 / Brownsburg Turnpike]. Finally, in milder weather – which is often enough in this area, enjoy nearly an acre of property complete with a large hand-carved totem-pole, a barbecue station, a front and back porch, a rustic patio lit with Edison lights, a chiminea, a fire-pit and sitting area, and a well-manicured lawn to play your favorite old-time lawn game (croquet, lawn bocce, corn hole, etc.) or simply just enjoy walking the beautiful property and remember to stop in the Old Post Office and say hello to Bob, our Post Master. Send a postcard stamped ‘Brownsburg’ as part of your experience to an old friend or family member to let them know about your experience.
