Old Stage Depot
on the Old Federal Road,
located on the Old Anderson Property

Near Old Texas, Monroe County, Alabama

Along this area is where the Old Federal Road once was. It is located off Highway 47 North, Old Texas, in Monroe County. Turn east on Owens Road. Stay to the left in front of the Bethlehem Methodist Church. At the intersection of Owens Road and Liberty is where the Anderson Stage Stop is located. The house is on the south side of the road, the livery stables on the east and across the road from the house.

To the east, across the road from the Stage Stop, are the remains of the the livery stables - barn and holding pens for horses and livestock. The barn has since fallen down and there is a huge, square well.
