  1. I can tell you that Marshall, Fowlerville and Ottawa Lake definitely made it to fruition. Marshall is an abandoned porn store; Fowlerville is now Fowlerville Farms; and Ottawa Lake is a Marathon truckstop. All three still resemble Nix Farms buildings.

  2. Great idea. Here is the status of the former Nickerson Farms in Kansas:

    Colby-used as part of an outlet mall. Torn down now.

    Emporia-burned down 1983.


    Blackwell- was used as part of an outlet mall. Under the same ownership as Colby, Kansas.

    Mulhall- now a church.

    Hedville-abandoned, former OutPost Fun Center.

    Paxico-Wyldewood Cellars Winery

    Russell-Torn down in 2002 for new motel. Had been used as a boat repair shop.

  3. Indiana entry of Mt. Comfort is wrong. It was New Lisbon Indiana off of I-70

    1. You are correct!..and this was The Highest Volume Store in the entire chain of Nickerson Farms!!

    2. Here is a google image of what is left of the sign. Looks like the Stuckey's at that exit is gone as well.,-85.2627871,3a,15y,79.6h,90.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1ske-FAxYs06WH4K-yifV3iw!2e0!7i3328!8i1664!6m1!1e1

    3. Interesting. I worked at the New Lisbon location from late 77-80. started as a dishwasher in the slow season and as janitor and maintenance during the tourist season. They moved me out to the gas station area where I worked until I quit. I kept the exterior clean and had a good group of regular customers who traveled between Columbus, Dayton, Ohio and Indianapolis.

    4. I was born in 72 and growing up, Nickerson Farms was a treat. I remember the bees/honey and the awesome food. 💕

  4. The one in Honey Creek, Iowa was last called Iowa Feed and Grain. It closed many years ago and was still sitting empty when the Missouri River flooded it the summer of 2011. The last time I was by there, It was just two piles of rubble.

  5. Amazing; I was involved w/ Nickerson Farms, I openened or was involved w/ many ie; Dexter, Mn, Clinton Falls, Mn., Worthington, Mn., Eldin, mo., Honey Creek, Ia., New Braunfels, Tx., Marion, Tx., Picaho Peak, Az., Little Point, ill.., Rennesalear, Ind., New Lisbon, Ind., Shepardville, Ky., Mt. Cory, Oh., Fargo, Oh., Ottawa Lake, Mi., Belleville, Mi., Marshall, Mi., Fowlerville, Mi. (2)., In 1981, Nickerson's became a franchisee of Godfather's Pizza, I opened 20 pizza restaurants in Ohio & Hawaii! I opened more, but these are some!!!

    1. Were you a manager, are you in the area, around 73 until Mt Cry until it burnt down

  6. I drove by the Paxico, Kansas site today. Though the roof isn't red you can still tell it was a NF and its operating as a winery now. Its still in really good condition!!

  7. I also drove by the Loveland Colorado site a few weeks back. It is also in good shape. The last time I was in it, probably 10 years ago, it was a Western Wear store but I don't know what it is now.

  8. The Nickerson Farms building at Hedville Kansas has been torn down for a couple of years now. The numbers are dwindling.

  9. Mt. Cory Ohio has been torn down and serving as a storage lot for semis for at least a couple of decades.

  10. Phillipsburg, MO is now a candy "factory"
    Stotts City, MO is abandoned
    Menifee, AR is abandoned
    Widener, AR is an adult bookstore

  11. The Fargo Ohio is Marengo and it's still standing looks still the same but is now called farmstead family restaurant.

  12. My family opened a byob dance hall at the Sanger location in 1985. It was a nice family place where we provided the music, set-ups and dance floor. That was until the First Baptist Church of Sanger decided it was too sinful and ran-off our customers by having a local police officer and deacon of the church station himself outside every night.

    Two weeks after we shut down a "legitament business concern" bought the place and opened a porn palace that is still opened to this day.

    1. Closed now 2018. Roof is missing shingles. Drove by it this weekend on our way to Stillwater OK.

  13. The Weimar, TX location is still there. The structure looks like it's in decent shape from the freeway. I believe it was another restaurant briefly after Nickerson Farms shut down but it's been quite awhile since it's been operational.

  14. The location in Columbia MO. was at the intersection of Highway 63 and I-70. I used to think it was the original because it was named "Granddad nickerson's" They had the best patty melts.

  15. Just thought you should know, there is a Nickerson Farms Road in Marion, Texas. If you take Stagecoach Road and drive aways, you make a right hand turn and you are on Nickerson Farms Road. It then hits the IH10 access road. The building is still there, but it's an Exxon and a Dairy Queen. Been ages since I drove that way.

  16. The NF at Picacho Peak in AZ stood abandoned for many years. It has now been torn down with only the entry cover still standing.

  17. :( I miss you Nickerson Farms you will never come back

  18. The one in Cameron Missouri still stands and goats a bar and grill in it its a ok place

  19. There was one at I-55 and US 61 in Crystal City, MO (Exit 170). It has been a couple of other restaurants since, but I think is currently vacant.

  20. The Nickerson Farms in Marengo Ohio is open and called Farmstead these days. The list shows it in Fargo, OH.

    It's just off of I-71 and I exited the interstate and got dinner across the street at that location, just so I could photograph it.

    Thanks for maintaining this site. Our family never stopped at NF IIRC, always preferring the blue roofed competition.

  21. Sadly the former Nickerson Farms on US 23 and Stearns in Ottawa Lake, MI has since been abandoned by 2013 when these videos popped up.

    A Google Street View from late 2015 shows the site is still abandoned so it's rather a shame they couldn't get any business in that part of the county.,-83.696511,3a,75y,355.15h,89.05t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sc2L6f2y3ovZ-6ynhdQO2kQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

  22. My Dad use to love writing checks in the Paxico site just to watch the faces of the clerks..haha Gary Nickerson

  23. ive been meaning to post for a while. your missing 2 nickerson farm locations at least. one is in waynesville, mo. idk when it became witmor farms but there was one nickerson farms pc floating out there with that location. sadly its been torn down. its actually in buckhorn mo. I-44 and us 17. there is one in kodak, tn. i found the pc on ebay about 3 years ago now. it looks nothing like the common nf's. i cant pinpoint the exact location but i think theres a mobile gas station currently in its place. neighboring a now demoed hotel. exit 407 I-40 @ TN 86 Route 2. ive marked on google earth since i started this venture in researching NF. ive been through 3 computers now and marked them on google earth 4x now. i cant figure out how to save the markers externally or permanently post them to google earth so others can see the locations. im still missing a ton of locations mainly due to google earth doesnt go back far enough to see. the reason why i got into nickerson farms is cause back in i think 95 my family was going to see my cousins columbia, mo. this was at night and my father had stopped at the high hill location. it was for sale at the time and much better shape. my father wanted to turn it into a house. i thought at the time it was a church or old motel. fast forward to 2010. i had this like itch and i first googled abandoned church in high high. well after a couple of clicks i found out what it was. started reading up on it. i was like wow wish i could of gone but i was born when it closed. then i went to ebay and the first nf postcard was for sale was 3 from the newton, iowa. sadly i didnt start collecting till the following year. wish i started earlier. i have nearlly 130 pc, about 12 tokens, shreaded remains of the one in waynesville, mo, the bank, 2 coloring books, one laminate menu, one paper, one place mat, couple of maps. i missed a napkin on ebay. the one thing i would love to have is a red tile from a NF location. was wanting one from the picachu peak location since it came down. im gonna do a video of my collection on youtube in the future. thanks everybody for reading :)

  24. I worked for a advertising agency in Oklahoma City and handled Nickerson Farms in Oklahoma. I was friends with I.J. Nickerson. He used to drive his Edsel station wagon with his bird dog in the back to OKC. I would go with him the airport and pick up his friend Bill Reynolds of Reynolds Aluminum and they would go bird hunting in northern Oklahoma and Kansas. One time we went to the Nickerson Farms on I35 in south OKC and ordered. Then I told the waiter who he was and Mr. N. asked to speak with a manager. The manager got a favorable review from Mr. Nickerston.

  25. I find ndly remember the family road trips in our 1972 Ford Country Squire station wagon down Hwy 44 / old Rte 66 headed to our grandparents house in Mansfield, MO. We'd stop at the St. James location and beg our parents to buy us something in the gift shop after we ate. Also remember the beehive inside the store where you could see the bees thru the glass panel.

  26. I have so many fond memories of NF in Arkansas. My sister went to UCA and when we’d go see her from NE Arkansas, that’s where we stopped to eat lunch. My grandma loved their sugar cured and country ham. I don’t recall what I liked but I know they (like Stuckeys) had those pecan logs. I don’t know if the one in Widener is still standing but the one near Me enifee is but had long since been turned into a convenience store. Many great childhood memories of NF!

  27. we loved Nickerson Farms, they were a common stopping point, on our many trips from Mn. to Tex. The chicken dinners were the best! to bad we can't bring them back

  28. A fire heavily damaged the former Nickerson Farms retsaurant building along I-70 at Paxico, KS, on Thursday night, Nov. 8, 2018. Investigation is continuing. A person set their self on fire at the front door after the business had closed. That person died.

  29. Please do not forget the Missouri location that existed at the juncture of I-55 and US 61.
