Porky's arrives in Hastings

The longtime St. Paul landmark restaurant, Porky's, has arrived in Hastings.

The disassembled building arrived shortly before 4 a.m. Friday, June 10, at collector Steve Bauer's Little Log House Pioneer Village, located off 220th Street south of Hastings.

Restoration work has begun on the building, Bauer said. Starting next week, workers will begin the reassembly.

Porky's operated as a popular drive-in diner on University Avenue until it closed April 3.

The building will be restored in time for the Antique Power Show, set for July 29-31. It will not be operating as a restaurant except on special occasions.
