Downtown Lewisburg is the perfect getaway for great food, fun and entertainment right in the heart of the Greenbrier Valley.


A Bird’s Eye View of Downtown Lewisburg

Walking down Washington Street downtown is like taking a trip back in time to old-world Southern hospitality and charm. You will find award-winning restaurants, art galleries, beautiful antique shops, sidewalk cafes and eclectic boutiques.

A quick stop at The North House Museum, run by the Greenbrier Historical Society, will give you a glimpse into the history of this quaint little town. Lewisburg is named after General Andrew Lewis, who surveyed the town in 1751. He set up camp by a spring, and over time the town grew up around the spring. From the American Revolution through the Civil War, Lewisburg has played an important role in our country’s evolution.

While Lewisburg is enticing any time of year, local businesses and nonprofits cooperate to do host some special events in celebration of every season:
