7th original McDonald's.

Seventh McDonald's

The seventh McDonald's location to open, in 1954, still stands. It ceased operation in 1968 and has operated as a donut shop since 2004. The Golden Arches have been removed from above the roofline, but the classic outline of the Speedee service system sign with double circles remains in front.
