1850s Greek Revival Home turned into Mc Donalds

Freeport, Maine, United States

With so many historic homes being torn down it’s nice to finally see that you actually can mix new with old.  The Mc Donalds in Freeport, Maine doesn’t look like your typical restaurant.  In 1982, Mc Donalds purchased a 1850s Greek Revival home with plans to tear it down and build one of their standard fast food buildings.  Residents of Freeport did not like the idea which resulted in the town adopting new ordinances concerning what businesses could and couldn’t do with their buildings.  In the end Mc Donalds built the restaurant inside the home, keeping the original look of the exterior.  It even has a drive-thru!  Source: Historic House Blog
