See Gone, But Not Forgotten

NOTE: Humphrey House is now Signatures at the Humphrey House, so please see the linked page. This page is for historical reference.

The building began as a wing of Daniel Penfield's home near the Four Corners. This wing was eventually detached and moved across the street, where its residents included Dr. Maxwell Humphrey, after whom the building is now named.3

As The Humphrey House

The building was turned into a restaurant in October 1978, owned and operated by Jon Ludwig and Andy Gleason4. Due to poor health, the restaurant was transferred in 2008 to Mike and Cindy Videtti5.

The restaurant's name came from the building's original owner, Dr. Maxwell Humphrey - and the restaurant had "folksy shadowboxes of medical paraphanalia that belonged to the" doctor.

A review by Anne Palumbo in 2009 was quite favorable noting that " ... the Videtti's have made some minor but significant changes to the menu. They've updated several entrees with interesting ingredients and sauces; they've added new nightly specials; and the've made the lunch menu available all day long." Recommendations: Chicken Caesar Salad with grilled chicken, fresh greens, freshly grated Asiago, and homemade croutons. Steak Sandwich with tender beef, caramelized onions, and tangy bleu cheese. Seasoned Fries - "crispy and addictive".
