Timeline PhotosThis is an interior view of White Castle restaurant number 3 at the corner of Broadway and E. Sixth Street in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1953.

White Castle, one of the very first fast food restaurant chains in the United States, was founded in Wichita, Kansas, in 1921 by Walt Anderson and Billy Ingram. The company moved their headquarters to Columbus, Ohio in 1934, where it remains to this day.

White Castle created a model for the chain restaurant based on a standard of uniformity among its many locations. The company packaged its five-cent, square hamburgers, called Sliders, in individual boxes designed to keep the food hot and sold bags of hamburgers for a combined rate. For this reason, Ingram is credited with inventing the ‘take-out’ concept which most fast food restaurants continue to employ today.

Learn more about the restaurant’s history in our upcoming program “A Century of Sliders–Celebrating White Castle's 100th Birthday.”

Sponsored by White Castle, it’s scheduled for May 28. Get tickets and more info: ow.ly/4nnU50EGiDs

A dubious distinction. 😉

I know this one

I sure did know the answer to this one. I lived in Cuyahoga County for 24 yrs then moved to Franklin County for about 23 years. While there I started doing family research and learned my 2x's great-grandfather became a citizen of Delaware County in 1817. My great-grandfather and grandfather were born there as was his siblings. My grandfather's uncle fought in the Civil War from Delaware County. So yes I knew the answer to this one.
