A Look Back on December 15th

Anusha Shrivastava of the Waterbury Republican-American wrote that Mickey's Windham Diner, in Willimantic, Connecticut is opening today. It's a 1950 Mountain View diner.

Diane E. Foulds wrote about the Oasis Diner and its history for the Boston Globe.

What was a Burlington, Vermont tradition under the Lines family ownership, changed in October 2007. Glenn Walter purchased the diner and the Sadie Katz Deli opened in January 2008.

Telegram & Gazette staffers Cynthia Koury and Mark Melady wrote about the former Kenmore Diner in Worcester, Massachusetts. Six members of the Worcester fire department perished in a fire that destroyed the adjacent storage building. During the demolition bricks fell on the diner damaging it beyond repair.

A new structure was built on the site of the former diner. Though not a traditionally manufactured diner, it retains the name Kenmore Diner.
