Ca. 1890

Nick Kappas emigrated from Greece in 1913 and located in Roanoke. After the VPI vs. VMI annual football game in Roanoke, VPI cadets who frequented a restaurant where Kappas worked, persuaded him to move to Blacksburg to open his own business. He started the restaurant in 1921 in this building, and the business continues today. The restaurant had several different official names, but has always been called 'the Greek's' by its loyal customers. Today it is known as the Cellar Restaurant.
