Food was good. Nice small friendly place. No seating inside. All on the porch and some picnic tables.

Here is a hint. This road leads to a Civil War Battles it is named.

Another hint. Bonus points for food shots. The green beans were great. Just the right texture and the flavor good.


Maybe no relation but Johnny Cash married into this family name.

Grab!

Lester Manor Store, Powhatan Trail, King William. Near the Pamunkey Indian Reservation. "Lester Manor was established in the early 1700s. An extensive fish factory on the Pamunkey River was located there, and fish were shipped by steamboat throughout the Northeast. In 1859, the Richmond and York River rail line was built, positioning Lester Manor as a main transportation artery for the area. A hotel, tavern, store and post office greeted rail passengers at the site. The original club (not open for tour) had many members from prominent families associated with waterfowl hunting throughout the Northeast who came to Lester Manor by rail. Lester Manor was bought in 2005 by the present owner who built a small-scale village to represent the old Lester Manor Railroad Station Village. The complex includes the depot station and a 1918 steam locomotive and several rail cars. Standing opposite are the Lester Manor Store, a carriage house with carriage, the Lester Manor Tavern, a stagecoach building, a blacksmith shop, a log outpost, a totem pole and two teepees representing Pamunkey Neck. The village is creatively constructed and is a wonderful place to stop, walk around and enjoy a nostalgic experience. Opened for the first time by Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Lee Walker".

Enjoy the road. Ride it the whole way through. A nice meandering curvy road.
