This is the original Quarrier Diner.
The hotel behind the diner was also owned by the Young family, who were from Ripley
Another photo of the first Quarrier Diner built by the Ward Dining Car Company of NY.
As dining cars were considered mostly for men, the Youngs made sure woman were welcome.
An interior shot of the one car diner. Soon, there would be two cars connected together.
The Ultimate Diner
Business was so good that a second car was added and the name changed to The Twin Diner
The Littons "Dog Wagon" on Summers Street where the Young brothers got their start.
Levi & Clint Litton were the Great Uncles of the Youngs.
The Twin Diner was moved to Lee Street and the Building we all know was built in their former spot
The Quarrier Diner is once again open after being closed for many years
The Youngs also owned, then sold to relatives the Empire Diner on Summers Street
Look close and you can see the two dining cars that made up the Empire Diner
Here is the Empire Diner being torn down in the 70s. The Twin Diner on Lee Street was
then renamed the Empire Diner, and later the Empire Lounge until it was finally removed.
This is the Hotel Ulysses in the first photo at the top of the page. It was owned by
Ulysses Young and also Ott Young and was sold several times. Today, it's known as the Ott Building.
