The Seth Dayton Stagecoach Inn, built in 1868 and located south of Bouton and Hwy. 141, along the Des Moines to Fort Dodge  route, is one of the few surviving Stagecoach Inn's possessing almost all of its original authenticity. The Dayton Stagecoach Inn sits on approximately 10 acres and has been restored for tours, special programs and overnight rentals. 

The land surrounding the house offers opportunities for hiking, fishing and picnicking. Natural resources on the property include 150 year old oaks and access to Beaver Creek.
