Hennick's Restaurant photograph
Description: Photograph taken outside of Hennick's Restaurant during a promotional visit from the bellboy mascot of Phillip Morris, John Roventini, 1938. The signature reads "Best Wishes to Herb Hennick's --Johnny Jr." Hennick's Restaurant was a popular hangout on the Ohio State University campus during the early and mid-20th century. Owned by Herb Hennick, it was located at 1824 North High, across Fifteenth Avenue from another Ohio State landmark, Long's Book Store. It began around 1904 as a modest storefront offering candy, cigars, sodas and such, but soon evolved into a popular spot to meet after university football games when the Buckeyes played at "Ohio Field" on High Street. The business closed in the 1950s. View on Ohio Memory.
