The hotel did a good business because it was on one of the main routes from Philly to Boston via NYC.
Then at the behest of the King, Ben Franklin established three "post roads" that were marked off with mile posts to charge for
mail transport. The northernmost route was through town but Ben moved it 20 miles further north which killed much of the traffic.
