History of Northfield Restaurants Exhibit Opens at Historical Society

Unique NN 3-23-23.jpg

Running a restaurant is hard work. Fortunately, Northfield has had a long history of places to eat meals carefully prepared and served by people of vision, energy, creativity and determination. Many of these places, in addition to providing food, serve as gathering spots, adding to the character of the community. Some have had short lives, while others have been in business for decades.

The current Northfield Historical Society exhibit provides a glimpse of the long history of eating-places in our town.  NHS Director Hayes Scriven says the exhibit features those places still open and which have been in business the longest.  Others, including some that have passed into history, are also documented. The exhibit will be on display through the summer.

On Thursday, May 16, from 6:00-8:00 p.m., NHS invites the public to the opening of the exhibit and to help celebrate the work of the many volunteers who contribute hours year round in the museum store, collection and in many other ways to make NHS an important community resource.

NHS Museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Admission is Adults $4.00, Seniors $3.00, and Students $2.00.  Members Free.
