In the News - Former Skee's Diner

What's in store for the former Skee's Diner? Walt Gogolya wrote an article for today's Register Citizen updating us on the situation.

We first saw the announcement of this project back in January. In March 2008, we checked in on this 1926 O'Mahony diner. The diner was in about the same shape as our prior visits. It will need restoration, the extent of which is yet to be ascertained. As this diner is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it will be a challenge for this structure to become compliant with the multitude of government regulations once it moves. It's listing may be in jeopardy as a result of these modifications.

We'll post more information as it becomes available. Meanwhile, Walt Gogolya's entire article may be read here.
