Welcome to Rappahannock Central. We invite you to step through our doors to experience fine art, Virginia made craft, awesome photography, community outreach, fabulous Spanish cuisine and genuinely friendly people.
Rappahannock Central is a beautifully restored apple packing facility from the 1930s with touches of modern architecture like stainless steel railings, corrugated steel and ultra-chic European light fixtures combined with rustic wood floors and sliding stable doors. It currently houses the River District Arts studios, Old Rag Photography Gallery, The Confluent Gallery, The River Gallery, Artisan Market, Middle Street Gallery, Living Sky Foundation and El Quijote, a restaurant specializing in tapas and traditional Spanish dishes.
Next door, you can also spend hours looking for antiques at the Copper Fox Antiques in what must be one of Virginia largest antique warehouses or tour the famous Copper Fox Distillery, home of Wasmund Single Malt Whisky. They are literally just steps away!
Sperryville is an easy drive from Washington DC, Charlottesville and Richmond and a worthwhile drive from anywhere else you may live! Located in Rappahannock County, Sperryville is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge and a stone's throw from Shenandoah National Park's Skyline Drive. Rappahannock County is also home to a bevy of art galleries, artist studios, wineries and inns for a perfect day or week in the country.
