1844 House in Potsdam to close doors Oct. 30
POTSDAM -- The 1844 House, 6885 U.S. Hwy. 11, if no buyer is found, will close its doors Oct. 30 after 15 years in business.
Since 2006, 1844 House has spearheaded the farm to table dining movement in the community. Not only supporting many farms around the county, but also growing food in their own gardens on property.“We are so proud to have inspired so many other restaurants and food businesses in the community to focus on fresh local ingredients” the Walker’s said. Brian & Jenny Walker will be relocating to Southwest Florida to pursue other professional opportunities and be closer to family.
They had hoped to be able to transition the restaurant to new ownership and keep this well established and successful restaurant in business, providing good paying jobs in our community. COVID has made finding a buyer extremely difficult during the past year. But thanks to the dedicated management team, staff, and faithful support from the North Country community, the restaurant has fully recovered and is operating at full capacity once again.
Brian left 1844 a year ago to take a position as General Manager for a private yacht club on Captiva Island in Florida. After a year of constant family separation and the challenges of traveling between NY and Florida during the pandemic, they have decided to reside full-time in Florida.
1844 House is no longer selling gift certificates and encourages anyone that has one to redeem it by the end of October. They can be used for dine-in or carry-out, but are not redeemable for cash.
