Log House Restaurant (Benjamin and Rebecca Robinson House)
This two-story building has a two-pen V-notched log structure with a one-story front porch, a central roofline gable with a window, and interior- and exterior-end brick chimneys. Owned by the Robinsons until 1840, it had several subsequent owners, became a general store in the 1870s, and is now a restaurant.
Other nearby log buildings include the Mary T. and Fleming K. Rich House (c. 1830; 480 E. Main) that is now covered with weatherboarding and probably served as a residence and store. Rich, who probably came to Wytheville a few years after the house was built, produced coffins and furniture in his cabinet shop. After the Civil War, Rich's widow, Mary, ran her place as a boardinghouse for summer visitors. At 420 E. Main, the building (c. 1830) constructed with V-notched logs and now weatherboarded has a central gable and front porch that date from the later part of the nineteenth century.
