Approximately 70 years ago, as World War II was ending, a small ice cream stand was built by Leo Teittinen. Business prospered as Route 2A was then a busy road. The luncheonette became a restaurant with entertainment and in the mid 50's, the two 6-unit motels were added and the restaurant was expanded again.
Mr. Teittinen sold the business in 1969, shortly after the present Route 2 was completed. The restaurant did well until the early 1980's, when local unemployment levels of greater than 20% caused it to fall on hard times.
