This house’s landmark status gave McDonald’s no choice but to build its most beautiful restaurant.

The Denton House of New Hyde Park, NY, was built in 1795. In 1860, it was made over as a mansion. In 1986, it was bought by McDonald’s, and in 1987, local residents secured its status as a landmark. McDonald’s was not allowed to tear it down, so it had to renovate it, making it McDonalds #12000, the loveliest of all.

 This houses landmark status gave McDonalds no choice but to build its most beautiful restaurant.
