The historic Brugh Tavern has been a popular landmark in Botetourt County for two centuries. What started as a private residence in the late 1700's became a tavern during the early 19th century. It has now been restored and re-opened in Roanoke County. The restoration project began in 1995, when it was taken apart and numbered piece by piece, then rebuilt at Explore Park.
