FLASHBACK: Louis’ Diner in Concord, NH
If you're from Concord, NH...surely you remember!
It was a landmark in Concord for many years. Louis' Diner sat at the intersection of Manchester St. and Airport Rd. for 61 years. It has been gone for over 20 years. But did you know that it still exists?
According to an article in the Concord Monitor from 2007, the diner had a long history of ups and downs. It originally opened in Newburyport, Massachusetts in 1932 as Rich's Diner. It was moved to Concord in 1937, and sold to Louis Kontos in 1941.
It was sold in the 80's, but the new owners kept the name. The diner closed in 1999 when the owners fell behind on the mortgage and taxes.
A stripped down shell of the restaurant was last seen in Cranston, RI, and it was reportedly set to be restored by the American Diner Museum.
