Saugus Historical Society

Location: American Legion Hall 44 Taylor St. Saugus (spring meeting location)

CLASSIC ROUTE 1! Share your memories of Route 1 as we travel back in time. For many outside of Saugus, the town is defined as a 4 mile stretch of bright lights, restaurants, and shops. The Newburyport Turnpike that was built in 1805 suddenly blossomed in the mid-twentieth century as a destination for many in eastern Massachusetts and beyond. The interesting signs and businesses of Saugus, including Hilltop Steak House, Prince Pizza, Russo's Candies, Red Coach Grill, Kowloon, Weylu's, Augustine's, Diamond Head, Chickland, Adventure Car Hop, Flamingo Lounge, Puritan Diner, The Continental, and so many more were known far and wide. Some are gone, and some are very much still here. Come see a slide show of iconic places of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. This meeting will be held at the Legion Hall, 44 Taylor St. in Saugus while the Saugus Historical Society's building at 30 Main Street is under construction for the addition of the SCTV studio. Classic Route 1 is the first program for the 2020 Saugus Historical Society season and the meeting will begin at 7 PM on March 11. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
