ustomers are always curious about our building, a Quonset hut. Between 150,000 to 170,000 Quonset huts were manufactured during World War II. Quonset huts were meant to house people and protect materials at far-flung bases. The building needed to be inexpensive, lightweight, and portable so it could be shipped anywhere and put up quickly using hand tools. A crew of six experienced men could build a hut in a day. After the war, the U.S. military sold the surplus Quonset huts to the public for around $1000 each. We are not sure when the Quonset hut arrived at this location, but it has not always been a restaurant. It was home to Woodside Township Maintenance shed, trucking company, plumbing and heating business and even a bait shop for a short period. We think it’s perfect as a restaurant and are happy to be here.
