Brandy Station and Rice Tire

posted on
Brandy Station and Rice Tire

Located in the Shenandoah Valley the small physical size of Brandy Station belies its significance and prominence in American history. The Battle of Brandy Station during the Civil War was the largest horse mounted Calvary battle of the war and the largest Calvary battle ever fought on the North American continent. The Battle of Brandy Station was a precursor to the Civil War’s most famous battle, Gettysburg and was as some might say “the lynch pin” that unlocked the Union victory at Gettysburg and eventually the war. 

Today’s Brandy Station is a much different place then when 20,000 mounted troops battled to gain control over this small patch earth.
As one of the homes of Rice Tire, knowing the people of brandy station and the pride they have in their place in history makes this city unique. Their tenacity to survive such turbulent times a testament to their fortitude and you can see it everywhere you go.

Amazing microbreweries like Far Gohn Brewing Company and Beer Hound Brewery are a great way to quench your thirst after touring the Brandy Station Battlefields. Or take a stroll over to Graffiti House which is One of the only remaining structures to be left standing after the war, Graffiti House was a Civil War hospital were soldiers wrote poems and drew pictures on the inside walls, thus becoming a monument to the soldiers who fought battles here.

After a deep dive into American Civil War history you can take a break at the Moving Meadows Farm who’s ranked 5-Stars on Trip Advisor as the rated as the Best Bakery in the area and Amazing Cinnamon Rolls. If you’re in the mood for a bit more of an adult beverage though, Old House Vineyards just down the road has award-winning wines that are sure to fit the bill.   Brandy Station with its downtown revival and strong sense of history is a wonderful place to visit or call home.  Numerous gift, specialty stores, and eateries can be found walking the historic downtown district assuring that there’s plenty to buy, see, and do. A quaint town with  wonderful people and a beautiful atmosphere in this revival downtown area is a must see for everyone.
