Building History:

Replacing the original Livery Stable that sat on the corner of South Main and Broome St which burned to the ground in 1932, the present day W. H. Collins and Son “ Mule Barn” as it’s fondly referred too, stands today as a reminder of the by gone days of Waxhaw.

As the name implies, the Livery Stable was of great service to the townsfolk as well as passers through. Locals in town for the day could find shelter, feed, and water for their horses, while attending to their shopping, and horse and buggies could be rented for transportation by “out of towners” in on business. Mules could also be purchased from the Livery Stable by farmers to supply the “horsepower” needed for the many small family farms common to our area in that day.

No longer useful for these bygone purposes, the Collins “Mule Barn”, has been meticulously restored by a great grandson of W.H. Collins. Though the building has found a new life and a modern usefulness, it still retains the rustic outward appearance of the Livery Stables of old.
