“Coffee Pot surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Were excited to find this just by chance. We don't really know what it's used for now, but there are indications that someone is inside on occasion. It was quiet on the Saturday we were there.

This is a great piece of Bedford a County history but. I would like to see it open more often. It has been nicely restored and a great place for photos.

“A Nice Photo stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

It was nice to have a picture with this giant coffee pot and learn a little bit about its history. It was easy to find-just right off the freeway exit. . Spend about 5 minutes, take a pic and spend more time in downtown Bedford.

“Fun example of architecture of a gone-by era”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A great example of "classic" roadside architecture along the Lincoln Highway. Easy to pull off the road and take a picture. Glad it has been saved.
