Sitting just a hop, skip and a jump from the Skowhegan Indian, sadly the Empire Grill is closing it’s doors.

    So sad to see the video about the Empire’s closing. The people of that town need a place like this …. and how cool is it that a property that was reclaimed for a movie set became a practical part of the local economy (if only briefly).

    I did a Richard Russo book & movie location mini-tour a few years ago; but I didn’t make it to Skowhegan.

    My mood just went from UP to Down when I saw that this cool place is closing. Dang! Glad you got some photos for posterity.

      We pass through town there each year while visiting family in Maine. Sadly, I never went inside to eat. Another piece of Americana fades away…
