The Town purchased the Campbell Station Inn and the surrounding 2.26 acres in 2012 because of the site’s rich history and prominent location. While the future use of the building has yet to be determined, the house will continue to grace the intersection of Kingston Pike and Campbell Station Road for years to come due to ongoing restoration work.
The west wing, the kitchen addition and the screened porch on the east side have been removed. The brick on the entire house has been repointed and a new roof will be installed this fall.
Interior repairs to walls, floors and ceilings and installation of new wiring, new heat and air, and a sprinkler system are currently underway, along with the evaluation of the original windows. The former pet day care business behind the house is currently being demolished, along with a portion of the parking lot.
All of these interior and exterior repairs will be completed by the end of December. The Town plans to host open houses for the general public in early 2019, even though the interior of the building will not be completed until the use of the house has been determined.
Plans for Phase 3 renovations – creation of an adjacent park, construction of a restroom facility and the addition of two driveway connections to Village Green Shopping Center – are currently in the design phase. Public input on the future use of the Campbell Station Inn will be solicited when work is further along.
