A Look Back on October 30th

The The Patriot-News Co. mentioned the former Tom Sawyer Diner on North Second Street in Harrisburgh, Pennsylvania. It was moved from storage, arrived onsite, went through renovations and then opened in May 2006. During this time the Tom Sawyer name was retained and the diner was open for a little over a year. It reopened on October 5, 2007 as Konnichiwa and quickly closed again about two weeks later. The 1958 DeRaffele diner saw more changes and opened again, this time under the name Sawyer’s Cantina.

Jill Kaiser Dion reported in the Milford Mirror that the Milford Diner in Milford, Connecticut, would be moving a short distance away to a site on Melba Street. A local businessman had purchased the diner, though lost ownership through the court system. When we visited the diner in May 2007, it was still at its New Haven Avenue address and closed.
