Stuff going on around the old R&R for about the last week. New timbers in front, shrubs cut back and a gate put up. Hoping for something usefull. Anybody got any info?

Hope it's not another ill fated attempt at a "fine dining" sort of place. White table cloths and servers in monkey suits just ain't gonna work in Hiram.

I'm curious as well.....I saw two, bright yellow, locked gates installed that lead to the lower parking lot. Haven't heard anything else.

It had become quite an eyesore, not being kept up, etc. Maybe the county stepped in to make the owners clean it up? :pardon:

New boarding house for the tunnel workers.


My local friends working up in Williston North Dakota call them "Man Camps". They get a clean bed, breakfast & dinner buffet and a bagged lunch.

It's got to be expensive for the tunnel workers here paying for a motel room then eating out every meal.

That place was built on an Indian burial ground.

Seriously, does everyone know the Publisher's Clearing House connection with the history of that place?

There used to be a portrait of Ben Croker in there. Ben owned the feed mill in Hiram. I went fishing with Ben on occasion. Ben and my uncle were lifelong friends. When I was introduced to Ben my uncle said "feelip, this is Ben Croker. The only man I know that has sold a million dollars worth of corn shucks and rat sheeze."

You are right, it is a nightmare. The construction is not great for a busy restaurant.

When it was open, we always loved going there. I remember going there back in the 90's. We took several people and treated them there. I remember it used to be the place where a bunch of kids went for their prom dinner. Too bad it will probably never see that level of activity again. And today, if it was open, you could avoid all of the traffic out on 278 in Hiram. The closest substitute is the Olive Tree.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.

It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills.

It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies…

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

Senator Barack Obama

It is an awesome place to take pictures. I always thought a photo studio in there would be great.

Is that your suggestion or are you "in the know?"
