Eclipse Company Town

We had been thinking of a storefront for awhile; well actually, since the first time that the barn leaked. Or maybe, it was the moment that I realized that critters like to eat cardboard. Two years later, we found a place that just seemed right for us . . . restaurants, the bike path, plenty of parking and a peaceful, country vibe. Best of all for a vintage storefront, Eclipse Company Town has a history. We admired the vision – and fortitude – of the owners who restored the old buildings (ca. 1900). Certainly, well just maybe, one of the descendants would have known about the mining town! At least, I could make the connection . . .

We also had a history of good times at Eclipse – watching Eliot and Ezra work in the kitchen at Zoe’s (well, mainly they washed dishes) but they loved their work! A family friend tried the restaurant business – and we loved the food. A little later, Eliot and Katie celebrated their wedding (after stopping to help with a car accident on Route 33) at the newly renovated Company Store.

Perhaps, most importantly, we liked our neighbors – both residents and our business neighbors, Rickshaw Thai and Kiser’s Barbecue and Adena Bike Path.

We are happy to be here! Ride your bike or drive your car – stop by and check us out!
