Waffle House: Historic Landmark?!?

Was it a stop on the Underground Railroad? No…OK…

ts-whlogo2There is an application before the DeKalb Historical Preservation Committee to make the Waffle House in metro Atlanta a historical landmark. That particular Waffle House is no longer a working restaurant; it’s been turned into a museum.

I can’t say for sure if I’ve ever eaten at a Waffle House. If I have, I was probably drunk or hungover. When I think of someplace being an historical landmark, a place like the Waffle House doesn’t come to mind. I think Jim Gaffigan sums up what I expect from the Waffle House best.

  4. I hadn’t even noticed the subcaption! Hhhahahaha!

    Ahh, yes. Many an abolitionist passed on the secret “Waffle House station” on the freedom trail via homemade quilts that featured the follwing symbol:

    A log cabin quilt block, bordered by stylized forks and trucker hats.
