Colonial Era McDonald's

This McDonald's is indeed in a historic building but it is most certainly not from the colonial era. I believe it's late 19th century (the exact date is on a plaque inside).

Colonial McDonald's

There's the colonial McDonald's in New Hyde Park, NY (on Long Island). The landmark commission wouldn't let them tear down the historic mansion they purchased, so they restored the outside and converted the inside to a fast food restaurant.
