Seems like a million years ago......

My mom was born in Findlay many years ago. She married my dad, who was in the Navy, so we traveled a lot!!!! I finally got to Findlay in the early 70's to visit some family. My mom took my to Dietsch Brothers for the best ice cream I've ever had but before we went there, we had a hamburger and milkshake at some restaurant that had an actual working soda fountain!!! I remember sitting up at the bar and watching them make the old fashioned milkshakes. Can anybody tell me the name of that place and whether it's still open or not? Any help would be great!!!! 😁

www.findlay200plus.com: look through there and see if anything computes. It's a special bicentennial newspaper edition about Findlay. Dietsch is there(and they're still in business) - didn't have time to read it all.

Glad the question is resolved.

We really enjoy the quaint "working soda fountain" restaurants on our road trips and use TripAdvisor to locate.

I'm excited that it's still there. I haven't been to one since going to Wilson's! 😁
