What Is Distinctive And Authentic To The Character Of The Region

The Port Henry Diner is a Ward Dining Car, built by the Ward & Dickinson Dining Car Co. in 1927.  The diner is one of the last of its kind in the country.

 Ward Dickinson was based in the Great Lakes region.  Their diners were first used as mobile lunch cars, serving factory workers.  The Port Henry Diner started out in Glens Falls and in 1932 moved to Port Henry where it has been ever since.  Over the next 80 plus years, the diner changed hands a number of times and underwent an extensive renovation in 1996.

 In June 2012, the diner was bought by Don Foote and re-opened in August as Foote’s Port Henry Diner.  The diner is located in the historic village of Port Henry on Lake Champlain with a view of the lake.  Boats travel up and down the lake, connecting to the Hudson River and points south.  There is a lot travel to and from Canada.
