Reno's Roadhouse (Toby's Roadhouse)

-A A +A
Toby's Roadhouse
1933; later additions. 5425 Crystal Creek Dr.

This roadhouse is the largest and most complex of the 1930s buildings on this road. Reached by a swinging bridge, the vertical log building has cross gables laid with horizontal logs. Set on a base of vertical log skirting, the former roadhouse is further enlivened by windows with Z-pattern shutters. The picturesque former nightspot is one of the few rustic roadhouses that has survived from the 1930s.
