Original Dunkin Donuts as it looks in 2012. First and Original Dunkin Donuts

This is the location of the original Dunkin Donuts. The shop had been renovated many times since 1950, so it looked like every other DD out there. Until late 2011, the only way to know the significance was a small plaque mounted on the wall near the exit. In December 2011 the shop was completely "retro-renovated" to honor its past as the doughnut shop that started it all.
