Enjoy Some Local History at Plymouth Crossing Restaurant

423669_10151375824385510_1524375894_nPlymouth’s city center has enjoyed the arrival of many new restaurants and bars over the past several years. But just outside of downtown along Main St. at the level crossing, you’ll find the Markham Building and Plymouth Crossing Restaurant.

DSC01815The Building dates from 1885 when the Markham Manufacturing Company began producing wooden tanks and cisterns.  The company soon switched to manufacturing wooden air rifles while across the tracks, the Plymouth Iron and Windmill Company began producing a metal BB gun known as the ‘Daisy’.  And so began Plymouth’s page in history as the birthplace of the Daisy Air Rifle. Ultimately, the two companies became one and while the Daisy Buildings are gone save for a section of wall, the Markham Building remains.20130204_123937


The restaurant itself is a calming, traditional setting with a fireplace and plenty of wood tones, exposed brick walls, brass, and red, tufted leather booths.  The service is friendly and relaxed.  And the food is hearty and satisfying.  For a dining experience unique in the City, Plymouth Crossing is definitely worth a visit.
