Location of Excange Hotel was at 93 Main Street corner of Market Street, as shown in 1922 city map. Today Market Steet no longer extends to Main Street. http://www.quinnipiac.edu/other/ABL/etext/stagetavern/chp13.html STAGECOACH and TAVERN DAYS written by Alice Morse Earle THE MACMILLAN COMPANY New York London: Macmillan & Co., LTD Published 1900. Digitized by the Arnold Bernhard Library July 2006. Website design by Frances C. Foley. The Exchange Hotel, still standing and still in use as a public house, was the stage office for Pease's stage line in Worcester. This interesting old landmark, built in 1784, was owned by Colonel Reuben Sykes, the partner of Pease ; and other coach lines than theirs centred at the Exchange, and made it gay with arrival and departure. As the United States Arms, Sykes's Coffee-house, Sykes's Stage-house, Thomas Exchange Coffee-house, and Thomas Temperance Exchange in the days of the Washingtonian movement, this hotel has had an interesting existence. President Washington in 1789 " stopped at the United States Arms where he took breakfast, and then proceeded on his journey. To gratify the inhabitants he politely passed through town on horseback. He was dressed in a brown suit, and pleasure plowed in every countenance as he came along," Lafayette was also a guest; and through its situation opposite the Worcester court houses on Court Hill the tavern has seen within its walls a vast succession of men noted in law and in lawsuits.
