Here's what will happen to all the pictures, lamps, overhead lights, antiques, and other memorabilia from the Towne House

After what could be considered a lifetime of memorabilia consisting of pictures, lamps, overhead lights, antiques, and other memorabilia from the Towne House, many are asking what will happen to all that stuff once the building closes.  That's a good question and one I had too.

I reached out to Fred D'Ignazio who said dozens have already stopped by to literally ask for items off the wall.  Until the restaurant officially closes at the end of the year, everything must remain in tact.

However, if you really, really want a piece of this one of a kind restaurant, you may just be in luck and here's what you need to do:

There will be no promises made, but General Manger Joe Kirkwood has has asked everyone to write him, c/o "Joe Kirkwood, General Manager, The Towne House, 117 Veterans Square, Media, PA 19063" and tell him the item they are interested in and its location in the restaurant. He said he will deal with each written request after the restaurant closes in late December. 


  1. A public auction would be nice

  2. Not sure if you seen this related article:

  3. How about an 'open house' / silent auction type of event after it closes?

  4. Yes just let wait and see ... I certainly hope the Media Borough has something to say about what type of building or buildings that will be built and that they conform to the historic standards

    The Towne House is an ICON .. this is the only restaurant in Media that has any type of class when serving their customers. Media has a lot of nice food establishments with good food .. but the servers need to take a few classes in service .

    What's a shame is Eli Kahon and his group does not see the potential for putting a fine restaurant where the Towne House is , and stepping up the notch a little . Something like the old Little Inn , Country House Inn .. after the TH closes the any other place of some kind of class is the Concordville Inn.
