The Commonwealth of Massachusetts was birthplace to the burgeoning "Night Lunch Wagon" manufacturing industry in the late 19th century and early 20th century. These horse-drawn lunch wagons would eventually evolve into what became the classic American Diner. For many years there were diner builders like the Worcester Lunch Car Company (Worcester) and J.B. Judkins Company (Merrimac) operating in the Bay State, but only a handful of new diners were created after 1960. This left the state with a high concentration of some of the best preserved diners from the early to mid-20th century.
