Dukarts at McDon­ald’s – 1995

Newark Post - - Local News -

This week’s Out of the at­tic item is a 1995 photo of Len, Les and Alan Dukart pos­ing in front of the play­ground at the Main Street McDon­ald’s.

The photo ran with a Newark Post ar­ti­cle com­mem­o­rat­ing the restau­rant’s 35th an­niver­sary and not­ing the open­ing of the new play area, then the largest of any McDon­ald’s play­ground.

Len Dukart opened the restau­rant in 1960, and it was the first McDon­ald’s in Delaware. It was re­built in 1976 when an ex­plo­sion and fire de­stroyed the orig­i­nal build­ing.

The restau­rant was re­built again in 2014. The lat­est ren­o­va­tion added more modern fea­tures, but the play area was elim­i­nated.

Out of the At­tic is pro­duced in part­ner­ship with the Newark His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. The Newark History Mu­seum, lo­cated in the old train sta­tion un­der the South Col­lege Av­enue over­pass, is open Sun­days from 2 to 5 p.m. For more info, call 302-234-4145 or visit www.newarkde­his­tor­i­cal­so­ci­ety.org
