Dating back to 1887, the building originally served as a stable and post office and, later, housed local boutiques and community businesses.  Ugo and Gina Benincasa purchased the property in 1994 and, after extensive renovations, opened The Sheridan Livery Inn and Restaurant in 1997.  With Tonic, the Benincasa family is again giving a new life to this Lexington landmark.
