McDonalds "Store Number ONE" ~ 1 of 3 photos

This is the very first Ray Kroc McDonalds in the World!


Architect Stanley Meston designed the very first red and white tiled Golden Arched Des Plaines Illinois which opened on April 15, 1955. 10 years later there would be 700 restaurants in the USA. Unfortunately, is no longer open to the public, and an iron fence surrounds it. You can park at the nearby modern McDonalds, and walk across the street to view it through the fence.
