Gordonsville got the moniker as the “fried chicken capital of the world” in part to some entrepreneurial African American women who came up with the idea 
to sell homemade fried chicken to weary travelers in railroad cars traveling through town. Each year in October, Gordonsville honors its past by hold its annual Fried Chicken Festival.


At GIH we try our best to recreate the recipes of yesteryear with our contemporary twist.


Primarily places to store and sell ice for a community, ice houses have a long, but faded, tradition as central gathering places, with some even evolving into open-air saloons.
