In the News - Former Serro's Diner

Yesterday's Architectural Record mentions the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor (LHHC) organization. Charles Linn talks with their executive director, Olga Herbert about the Lincoln Highway Experience project.

The diner will be a central feature of the planned museum. Serro's is a late 1930s Jerry O'Mahony Dining Car Company diner. It's a rare "Monarch" model. See Agilitynut's website for pictures of Fegely's Reading Diner a similar diner. The Northampton Diner in Northville, NY was open when we visited it about three years ago. Fegely's and Northampton both have similar interiors and retain original elements. Our visit to Fegely's was on a diner trip taken at the beginning of this year.

Serro's last operated in the Greensburg, Pennsylvania area as the Willow Diner. Closing in the early 1990s, it was moved to storage. In 2003 it was moved again and to a different storage site in Pennsylvania.

Restoration of this diner is an exciting and ambitious project. We'll post more information about the diner and the museum as it becomes available.
