We've just received word of this diner being threatened with demolition. We would like to hope that someone out there would take on this project and restore the diner. The information we have on file for the diner is it's a vacant O'Mahony diner dating back to the 1920's.

This article speaks of the diner's history and includes an exterior and interior picture.

Ok, so how would you feel if the American Diner museum was to take this diner?

If there was such a museum, with a real plan for it, real money, and an actual space where people could visit, that might be a fine idea. Alas, no such thing exists.

We do not want to discourage any individual or group from acquiring and restoring this diner.
