Market [gone]
Pelham, NH
Yoken's Restaurant
Portsmouth, NH
The Stateline Market is just across the Massachusetts border. In 2020, the neon was removed from the sign and the letters were replaced with backlit plastic.

Yoken's Restaurant opened in 1947 and this sign is from then. Yoken's closed in 2004 was demolished in 2005. The sign remained but was covered up with a vinyl covering. In 2013, it was announced that the sign will be restored and adapted for "Yoken's Plaza" which is being developed on the site. The animated neon and flashing bulbs will be repaired. The cost for the refurbishing is about $40,000. The sign will be reinstalled and relit in 2015. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
