Room History:

Mr. Ralph Lashells was a native of Mercer County, New Jersey who served during the Revolution fighting in several major battles including Germantown and Monmouth Court House. He moved to Gettysburg, operated a tavern in 1789 and eleven years later served as Adams County's first sheriff. In 1808 he initiated the first stage line to Gettysburg. In the spring of 1816, he moved his subject business to this property.

In the December 20, 1820 Sentinel this ad was published,
"Indian King Inn and Stage Office - Having leased the well known Establishment in West York Street, a short distance west of the Court House in the borough of Gettysburg, lately kept by Mr. Ralph Lashells, as public house. Begs leave to inform his friends and the public in general that he is prepared and will use every exertion in his power, to entertain them in the comfortable and genteel style. The principle part of the furniture and particularly the beds and bedding, are new, and of the first quality. As this is an important object with Ladies and Gentlemen traveling, it has been particularly attended to. In providing for his Table, and selecting the best liquors for his bar (of which, from his long experience, he considers himself a competent judge) the greatest attention will always be paid. His stabling, is new and in good order. Sober and attentive Hostlers, and a supply of corn, oats, and hay of the best in the country can afford, will always be kept, and the strictest attention paid to this department, so the Gentlemen wishing to take the stage, may rest assured of having their horses well taken care of, and on reasonable terms. Also in the store adjoining the above, a selection of groceries."
