opened as a seasonal stand offering a limited menu, the North Attleboro
location grew into a full-service Restaurant by the late 1930s when
it received a substantial renovation and addition. Its large addition
served as the Restaurant's main dining area and architecturally
tied the building into HoJo's style of the day.
circa 1930s building was destroyed by fire in the 1950s and replaced
by a seventy-seven unit Nims-type. Seen at bottom, a thirty-eight
seat addition was added in 1960 to increase the Restaurant's capacity.
Called the Carriage Room, it was described as "an embellishing
creation . . ." that was ". . . relaxed and charming,"
and allowed the franchise's operator, Francis Murphy, to have a
separate dining room where he could "accommodate special affairs
and large transient parties."
