The Accomac restaurant in Hellam Township stopped serving food this week, but the property remains for sale with a new asking price.
The owners of the historic York County property have dropped the price to $995,000.
The listing includes the 150-seat restaurant, which sits on 7.9 acres of riverfront real estate, as well as a liquor license, furniture, fixtures and other equipment, according to an announcement by Rock Commercial Real Estate.
Rock is representing longtime owners Douglas and Charlene Calvert Campbell, who have moved to Arizona to spend more time with family.
The property was originally listed for sale in January with an asking price of nearly $1.4 million.
“Aside from the obvious restaurant use, there are a variety of ways to repurpose the asset including a bed and breakfast, special events venue, adult day care, medical or counseling facility or private residence,” said John Birkeland of Rock, the listing agent.
The liquor license also could be purchased separately from the rest of the business, he added.
Restaurant liquor licenses have become highly sought after in Pennsylvania over the last few years. Supermarket and convenience-store chains have been big buyers of licenses as they embrace their ability to sell takeout beer and wine, an opportunity created by liquor law reforms in 2016.
The Accomac’s 16,502-square-foot stone and concrete structure has a storied history dating back to the American Revolution. Before the Campbells took over, The Accomac also included an inn.
The Campbells have operated it as a restaurant and catering business since 1971.
