1985 Coleman's Restaurant Fire

85 0130 04
January 30, 1985

Although witnesses saw it early, and the Soperton Fire Department responded, the Coleman Restaurant in Tarrytown burned to the ground during the night. The building was originally one of the earliest gas stations in the area, and the family had added to the facility. It was known for it's barbecue, fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, and Thursday night all-you-could-eat chitterlings. It was popular with truckers, and train crews stopped for a few minutes to pick up meals.

Others that week: Basketball, Parker Waller honored at Tarrytown Baptist Church, Wayne Hooks and Bob Sanford at Lions Club.
