     History
    Nickerson Farms was a spin-off of Stuckey's (another venerable roadside stop). Like Stuckey's, it offered a gift shop and gas pumps. Unlike Stuckey's, it offered a sit-down restaurant (Stuckey's was more of a lunch counter operation).

    The chain started in the mid 1960's and lasted until 1980.

    As for this particular restaurant, the inside is stripped (no drywall), although some construction debris, seating, and fixtures remain.
