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.
Repointing, or replacement of loose cement around exterior brick, is now complete on the front of the house. Repointing and brick replacement will continue as exterior structures are removed.
The west wing of the house has been removed, and the kitchen addition on the rear of the house is currently being demolished. The screened porch on the east side will also be removed. A new roof will be installed once the house’s original footprint is restored.
Structural reinforcement continues in the basement. Upcoming interior improvements include repairs to walls, floors and ceilings, new wiring, new heat and air, and a new sprinkler system.
In the coming months, the former pet day care business behind the house will be removed, as will portions of the cement parking lot.
All of these interior and exterior repairs will be completed by the end of December. The Town plans to host several open houses as soon as the building is safe for the general public, even though the interior will be incomplete. Public input on the future use of the Campbell Station Inn will be solicited when work is further along.
Plans for the next phase of renovations – improvement to the grounds, creation of an adjacent park and the addition of two driveway connections to Village Green Shopping Center – are currently in development.
