General Store in Vischer FerryHave you seen what is going on mid Byway recently?  This charming building at the corner of Vischer Ferry Road and Riverview Road suffered a great deal of damage in a fire about a year ago.  The current owners have gutted the building and have started to reconstruct for use as a sandwich shop and deli.  Originally built in the early 1800’s as a general store, the building incorporates some striking Greek Revival features.

This will be an excellent example of how to maintain the character of the community, yet updating the building to meet a current need.

Peter Bardunias took this photograph about 2 years ago.  Currently all the windows and the front double door have been removed and made ready for replacement.  The facade is scrapped and being readied for repainting.  Watch the progress as this Byway landmark is restored.

    Great to see this building being repaired as it is a wonderful visual asset to the Trail System. Stay on it to ensure it enhances and blends in with the historic nature of that hamlet.
