The Nichols Gallery Annex
(12 Miles from Chestnut Hill Inn)

In 1997, Fred and Beth Nichols purchased the Barboursville Estes-Sparks Hotel.

Beth had always wanted to run a gallery, and with the growth of the wine industry around Barboursville, it seemed possible. In 1998, they held their first show, "A Celebration of the Landscape," featuring the work of over 20 Virginia artists. Since opening, Nichols Gallery Annex has exhibited the work of over 50 artists from the mid-Atlantic region. Located at: 5420 Governor Barbour Street, Barboursville, Virginia.
