DECOR.......................................................................................................................................................

The majestic beauty our region’s mountains, waterfalls, and forests have awed visitors and inspired artists for generations. We’re proud to have a place where folks can come and have a relaxing meal and be surrounded by Appalachian inspiration. We get a lot of questions about our unique decor, so we thought you might like to know a bit about our restaurant.
Until the 1960‘s, our building was home to the The Transylvania Times. The Square Root was planted at the beginning of 2007. Much of what you see around you is original. A history of popular colors (from white to 60‘s hot pink) were stripped to reveal the lovely copper patina, antique brick, and prism glass. The floor consists of 6,127 (count ‘em) blocks of yellow pine. Cuts 1-1/2” thick were made from 6X6 posts to create tiles. The sanding job was monumental! This type of flooring was once used in factories since it is strong enough to withstand the weight of heavy machinery. If you’d like to install one for yourself, don’t ask the folks who put it in. They swear they won’t try it again. But fortunately, we all get to enjoy their beautiful handiwork.
If you haven’t been in the bar, you should definitely check it out. The bar top is a milled slab of spalted Ambrosia Maple felled in recent years on King Street. We’d never seen another bar top like it, but there ought to be more. The fabulous 1930‘s Art Deco bar back was once in Fowler’s Dispensary in Lebanon, Kentucky, and made it’s way to The Root via Underground Salvage on Main Street. The bar is fashioned from antique panel doors salvaged from a house on Main Street. Antique door knobs finish the look and serve as hangers for your bags.

                     We hope you enjoy our restaurant's history and decor as much as we do!
