The Federal-style Ten Mile House, located on Highway 5 in Little Rock (Pulaski County), is a rare example of a largely intact rural home of the early nineteenth century. It was commandeered by Union troops during the Civil War and accommodated travelers on the Southwest Trail stagecoach line, earning it the alternative name “Stagecoach House.” The property is probably best known as the place where Confederate spy David O. Dodd was held overnight in 1863 prior to his transfer to Little Rock for trial and execution.
