I received this email announcement about Poirier’s Diner from Richard Gutman yesterday. Poirier’s Diner, which has been in storage for a number of years is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Subject: Immediate Release – Historic Diner Being Moved on Tuesday, December 13th – Immediate Release
The historic Poirier’s Diner (a 1947 Kullman, the second Diner in Rhode Island to be individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is on the move!
For more than 50 years, and under many different names, such as “Armand’s, Krystal’s, the Top Hat, Arnold’s and most recently, the El Faro, the Diner served the working men and women of Olneyville at its location on Atwells Avenue at Eagle Square. Saved from the wrecking ball when Eagle Square was mostly demolished, on this coming Tuesday the 13th, the Diner will be placed on a truck and rolled down the block to its new home at 1380 Westminster Street on Providence’s historic West Side.
Stay tuned for details.
