Keene Store, Keene

Keene Store, Keene, VA, ca. 1990

Name:  Keene Store

Date:  1990

Image Number:  UVA Library, Keene Store

Comments:  Built in 1900, the Keene Store was a two-story balconied building at the corner of Scottsville Road (Rt. 20) and Plank Road in Keene, Virginia.  Keene Store sold groceries and had two American Oil gas pumps.  In 1990, the interior of the store burned, and the building was adapted into a veterinary clinic.

In 1994, Dr. Chris Grover opened a full service companion animal hospital, named the Piedmont Veterinary Service, in this building located at 1418 Plank Road in Keene.  In 2018, this veterinary service continues to be a very successful business and is staffed by Dr. Grover, Dr. Karen DeGiorgis, Dr. Cori Lewis, and supporting staff.
