Olde Liberty Station!

After visiting the National D-Day Memorial the other day we stopped and had lunch at the Olde Liberty Station. This place is just wonderful. I loved the service and the food was delicious! TC had a club sandwich, and I had the oriental grilled salmon salad. We shared a slice of white chocolate strawberry cheese cake. That cheese cake was soooo good! They are famous for their cheese cakes. You can buy these yummy cheese cakes online and have them shipped.

The present depot, built in 1905, was originally situated west of the bridge, across from Randolph Macon Academy. A picturesque Colonial Revival building, it featured many handsome architectural elements, many of which still exist today. The station was moved to its present site in 1907.

Passenger service was finally eliminated in Bedford in 1971. Since that time, the station has housed several different services. Olde Liberty Station is now a full-service, locally owned and operated restaurant. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
