The Tiny Diner was located at South 9th and M Streets (near Hibberd School, in the lot adjacent to the Glass Company).
Elizabeth Parker’s Restaurant was located between South 16th and 17th Streets, on Main
The Coffee Pot Restaurant was located on U.S. 40, near Pennville Rd., Indiana (Western Wayne County)
I believe the Lowes Restaurant was located near today’s intersection of Interstate 70 & U.S. 40, in Richmond Indiana. A Lowes Home Improvement store is now situated in this immediate area as well…a connection in the namesakes? Probably not
Dinnies was located on U.S. 40 East, between the Rex Appliance Store & Dominos Pizza
An old Main Street Diner (Winzer’s) —Hamburgers for a nickel! (I believe the Courthouse Annex now occupies this block?)
