After years of catering to travelers on Dutchess County’s major highways, the “Historic” Village Diner now enjoys continued popularity as a community-oriented restaurant and the focal point of much local nostalgia. The “Historic” Village Diner is significant as a distinctive example of early-twentieth century American roadside architecture surviving exceptionally intact from its date of manufacture in the 1920’s. It embodies distinguishing characteristics of the type and period in its streamlined metal railroad dining car inspired design, which was intended to evoke, at once, the ideas of travel, food cleanliness and modern efficiency.
