Comments/Directions:
Quaker Square is an amazing piece of history. The Quaker Oats company began in Akron and in 1970 their plant was closed. The building was turned into a hotel and is now University of Akron student housing. Inside the campus eateries are wonderful. 3 original Broadway Limited cars are inside and you may eat your meals in them. There is also Schumacher's restaurant and Ferdinand's Spirits, all 3 have wonderful railroad memorabilia and photos in them. The school store is housed in the mall section of the building and has many, many railroad artifacts on display as well as several model railroads.. An Aerotrain park train is on display as well. There are a ton of interesting historical pictures and articles throughout the building. Across the parking lot is the depot that has been restored and can host banquets for up to 1,000 people. I loved this place, great history.

God Bless America
