Round Hill’s Old Furniture Store to be Sold

Another of Round Hill’s iconic commercial buildings is up for sale.

Wally Johnson announced this week that he and his wife, Carolyn Kruger, have listed The Old Furniture Factory building for sale.

They’ve owned the old wood building on West Loudoun Street for the past 14 years. During that time, it has operated as the Round Hill Design Studio, but is probably best known for its community gatherings, especially the monthly bluegrass, folk and Celtic jam sessions.

Johnson said he hoped the next owners would continue the popular tradition.

“We feel the building could be an asset to the greater Round Hill area as community center where activities such as the jam could continue,” Johnson wrote in the announcement.

While the search for a buyer begins, the jam will continue. The next session is Friday, May 26.

The announcement comes after the deaths of longtime Round Hill Grocery owners Robert and Frances Mulligan prompted an effort to sell their Main Street country store. The building remains on the market.
