Chester Boro - An American icon, nestled at the crossroads of Rt. 206 and Rt 24 in the quaint borough of Chester, Larison's Turkey Farm Inn stands, serving guests a country style turkey dinner since 1945. As all good things must come to an end, the same is true for this famous restaurant as of January 1, 2001. Patrons from all over and all ages will be left with the fond memories this establishment has created. (above left) A view of the restaurant as seen by the many travelers who headed north on Rt. 206. (above right) Marilyn Roseberry, of Chester, Assistant Manager for 17 years, at Larison's Turkey Farm Inn, poses for a photo with a beautifully prepared  turkey. The many Tiffany lamps in the dining rooms add to the warmth of the family style restaurant.
