abandoned diner
Ashland, OH
This abandoned diner is a Brill from the 1930s. It went by the names of The Diner, Sherrick's Diner and Peg's Diner until it closed around 1971. After that, it was painted orange and black and served as the office for V-Tech, a motorcycle repair business. Around 2003, the diner was painted white and used as a consignment shop known as The Treasure Chest. I believe the building has been vacant since 2008. This photo is from 2009. The diner was repainted yellow, purple, and red by 2012. The diner was still vacant in 2019. [map]
