History: The Tyee Restaurant originally began as a small, single room barber shop located on the corner of Main Street and Terry Road. In 1926, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Partridge purchased the building from Walt Stoddard and added a dining room. In 1929, the structure was moved to its present location and the second story was added. Pat’s Place contained a restaurant, hotel, barber shop and confectionery store. It became a landmark in the area due to the friendliness of the Partridge’s. Pat’s Place sponsored the local baseball team, served school lunches, provided housing for local school teachers, and rented rooms to traveling salesmen and others.

Abandoned Trestle of the Cabin John Trolley over Foundry Branch: The Washington and Great Falls Electric Railway was approved on July 28, 1892 to build an electric streetcar line from the Aqueduct Bridge to Cabin John Creek. It completed its track in August 1895. Because the railroad never reached Great Falls, but instead terminated at Cabin John, it was often referred to as the "Cabin John Trolley".
Great shot. Like. Hope you decide to join our group Religous Buildings of USA. Best wishes, Dave. My Gallery

I worked at this gas station as a high school senior in 1975. It was a Texaco and regular gas was .28 a gallon.
