Farmers Diner (now Quechee Diner)
Quechee, VT
The Farmers Diner is a Worcester (#787) from 1946. It was originally known as the Ross Diner when it was located in Holyoke, MA. The Ross Diner closed in 1990 and moved to West Lebanon, NH in 1991. Plans to open there fell through and another buyer moved it here in 1992. In 1997, it was renamed the Yankee Diner and attached to the Farina Family Restaurant. The Yankee Diner closed in 2006 but reopened soon afterwards as the Farmers Diner. These photos are from 2007. In 2011, the diner closed again. It has since reopened as the Quechee Diner.
