Brattleboro, VT -- 1111 Putney Rd

Opened in the 1940s, the Brattleboro HoJo's was sited on a rotary at the north end of town where roads converged leading travelers in every direction. The venerable Howard Johnson's lasted until the 1990s and was then converted into a Bickford's.

Along with most of the rest of the Bickford's chain, Brattleboro's was closed. By 2015 it had been converted into Ramunto's Brick Oven Pizza.

Easily converted into a Bickford's, the former Howard Johnson's retained its classic and time-worn good looks! At least up into the middle 2000s Bickfords claimed nearly 60 locations, but by 2015 only four or five remained.
