Highland Stables (AKA Rye Boarding Stables)
Until a decade or two into the 20th century, the horse was the primary means of getting around town. Just off Purchase Street were a series of stables pictured here. These were known as the Highland Stables, or, as shown here, Rye Boarding Stables. However, notice the signs, which state, "Rye School for Riding and Driving." The stables were replaced by Highland Hall apartments.
