Hometown Diner to open in September

What can be more Americana than a classic 1949 Silk City Vintage diner? After a 700 mile trip from Locust and East 11th street in Ottawa Ohio, the diner was placed on the intersection of Route 119 and 202 in Rindge New Hampshire.

New owner Tim Halliday was quoted in the Ohio Lima News

Think of how many movies feature scenes in the diner, sometime at the counter sometimes at the booth.
One of our Presidential Primary traditions is watching diners for migrating candidates.
