And speaking of Remmington, Virginia, I thought I’d give you a brief tour of Main Street, which consists of a one-block area. So this will truly be a brief tour!
I’ll start the tour with the Remmington Variety store. As the sign says, they sell “absolute beta products,” whatever they are–LOL. Business was brisk during our tour.
And this is Groves Hardware Store. It almost looks like a painting instead of a real brick-and-mortar store. I think it’s post-card worthy.
The train station and railway crossing.
The Embry-Maupin building built in 1903, which is currently vacant. Look at those architectural details. It’s such a lovely building; I hope to see it in use again soon.
Military presence in Remmington. I don’t know why that amused me so, but it did.
The Remmington Laundry Mat and Remmington Drug Company. I haven’t seen a working laundry mat in years.
We stopped by the Remmington Pharmacy to pick up a prescription–for my dog. It’s a compounding pharmacy and fills canine prescriptions, too.
We were greeted at the door by Peanut, the pharmacy dog.
I wish I could bring my dogs to work with me.
And they even have a working soda fountain. A working soda fountain AND a pharmacy dog? All I can say is “yowza,” I want to work there. And that ends our brief tour of Main Street.
