Hunter House, A Clean Well Lighted Place

Hunter House hamburgers, a cultural and culinary artifact of the 1950s

Birmingham Michigan's Hunter House House has been serving sliders and fries on the corner of Woodward and Hamilton for nearly sixty years. It's an artifact of the 1950s road food era, a precursor of MacDonald's. Here are some pictures I took at lunch today (4-2-06). Last year Hunter House narrowly escaped being demolished to make way for a new hotel. Fortunately the hotel project fell through. That was good news for Hunter House regulars of whom I have been one for many years.

its sad to see places with a local history destroyed in the name of progress, more should be done to save them.
