Staunton's Pullman Restaurant closes

The Pullman Restaurant located in the Wharf section of downtown Staunton has closed. The popular eatery, located in the old train station beside the railroad tracks that still see trains passing through several times a day, has been a mainstay for years.

This is indeed sad. Owned the past five years by Delegate Chris Saxman's sister and her husband, Kate and Mike Woodward, it had often been a gathering place for the community as well as local Republicans for events such as debates, the 2004 inauguration of President George W. Bush, election night celebrations, candidate appearances, and dinners with local GOP leaders such as the one with Lt. Governor Bill Bolling last year.

Thanks to Kate and Mike for the memories.
