From humble beginnings…
The building which houses the End of the Line Pub was constructed in 1919. The original building, four feet shorter than today's structure, became a train station for the Dominion Atlantic Railroad. The early station contained two waiting rooms, one for men (a smoking area) and one for women and children. Later a freight room was added to accommodate the increased traffic of a prospering community. As rail travel declined, services were reduced and an era ended, leaving only the station as a reminder of better times. But imagination and industry were soon to transform an ending into a beginning: the end of the line was to beget the End of the Line.
In June of 1994 both land and building were purchased by Joanne Frost. Seven weeks of extensive renovations generated a new service and hospitality venue for the Bridgetown area.
The End of the Line Pub retains much of the charm of the original station. Railroad memorabilia decorates the interior, reminding customers of simpler days, times when travel started here rather than ended here. Artwork focuses on scenes typical to the area. A fireplace warms the chilly evening. The exterior of the pub has been revitalized also, first with a wonderful mural by Matt Cupido (1995) and later with the addition of patios for summer use.
