George Bowers Grocery

In 1881 a New Yorker named George Bowers traveled to Staunton, Virginia and set up a neighborhood grocery store. Despite being just a few years after the Civil War the neighborhood embraced Mr. Bowers' grocery. It survived and thrived until his death. Today you can enjoy an updated version of George's shop in an 1880s era school house. Dine outside and enjoy a delicious deli sandwich, Polyface Farms burger or hotdogs, or other snacks as you explore historic Staunton. (Oh: and we LOVE craft beer.)

As George described his shop: "we sell staple goods and fancy groceries". Come see for yourself!
