Nelson County, VA
After months of renovation and preparation The Blue Toad opened its indoor portion of the pub to customers this past Saturday. The deck and outdoor seating has been available for several weeks since opening back in July. But, the inside was undergoing a major transformation.
“The beam you see them holding up with the big Excavator in the shot is what our Centerpiece of the Dining Area turned into. These beams were the main support beams for the Irish Catholic Church that the Irish Settlers built while building the 3 Tunnels through Afton Mountain around the 1850’s. When the Church was no longer used, a barn was built on the same foundation in 1930. All of that wood and metal is used all over the pub, tables, walls, you name it…”
Though the inside has been opened now for nearly a week, an official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place this Saturday at 11AM.
See you there!
