This Restaurant In Virginia Used To Be A Church And It’s Absolutely Incredible
Many of Virginia’s historic buildings have served various purposes throughout the centuries. Perhaps it’s a bed & breakfast that was once a Civil War hospital. Or a gas station that now offers a fine dining experience. Another striking example of this is the Freemason Abbey Restaurant in Norfolk. As you may have guessed from its name, this eatery is located inside of a renovated church that dates back to the 19th century.
Here’s more on this fascinating site and the delicious food you’ll find there:
