Steger Creek

The name, Steger Creek, is derived from an actual creek running through Central Virginia where our owners, Michael and Alex Pace, own property.  As the creek flows, it feeds the Rivanna River, which ultimately flows into the James River.

Steger Creek has been part of the Pace family history since 1918. Michael’s Great-grandfather, Robert Septimus Pace, acquired the property where the creek is located from a Mr. Steger. The original house on the property was constructed in the 1700’s sometime prior to the Revolutionary War.  It was rebuilt and had multiple additions throughout the 1800’s.

Michael’s grandfather, Robert Stanley Pace, was raised there with his nine brothers and sisters and even Michael’s father, Stafford Buck Pace worked and played on the property as a young man.  Today the property is owned and managed by Michael’s Great-uncle, Robert Septimus Pace Jr.  The property has grown to approximately 400 acres and “Uncle Robert” has renovated the home, outer kitchen, and built a beautiful brick museum on the property several years ago. The museum houses many Pace family heirlooms and antiques and other antiques from Fluvanna County.

The name and history of Steger Creek has been so special to the Pace family that they wanted their business to reflect its extraordinary character. When they acquired the Salem Creek store in Roanoke, Virginia, Michael and Alex created the corporation, Steger Creek, Inc. In May 2007, the name of the Salem Creek Roanoke store officially changed to Steger Creek. The Pace’s long-range plans are to open additional stores bearing the Steger Creek name and reputation of family, service, and quality.
