The Town of Strasburg was charted in 1761 and incorporated in 1922. It is well known for its pottery, antiques, Civil War history, and breathtaking views. The pottery industry began circa 1761 with at least seventeen potters producing earthen and stoneware commercially. The Strasburg Museum building was constructed in 1891 for use as a steam pottery until circa 1909 when the last pottery closed. In 1913, the Southern Railroad Company purchased the building and it served as a freight and passenger depot until the 1960s. It later became a museum and opened to the public as a National Historic Landmark in 1970. Displays include a large collection of original Strasburg Pottery, antiques, Civil War articles, Native American artifacts, farm tools, a red caboose, and a working model railroad depicting Strasburg and the Southern Railway in the 1930s.
Strasburg Square is located downtown and is made up of a large stage and an includes a spacious 800 square foot market pavilion surrounded by a brick patio and features glass roll up garage doors. Many events are hosted here including Comedy Nights, their Annual Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Festival, and a series of live music and concerts called Front Porch Fridays.
Every breakfast lovers dream is The Pancake Underground. It was first opened as a food cart in Oregon. The owners decided to come back to their roots of Shenandoah Valley and trade their cart in for a true brick and mortar store. Open until 3pm, stop in and try their fried chicken pancake or waffle with cayenne-infused honey or the peanut butter and berry pancakes.
All the rage now days is finding restaurants who use the highest quality ingredients, thankfully, Old Dominion Doggery & Burger Shoppe does just that. They pride themselves in only using fresh 100% grass fed beef for their burgers and dogs. The menu includes some really unique items like the whopping $20 Quadzilla burger. Wondering why it’s $20 and called the Quadzilla? It has 4 layers of beef, 4 slices of American cheese, chili, grilled onions and coleslaw served on a brioche bun and their Famous Boardwalk Fries. Do you think you could finish it?
