A little after midnight on May 30, 1966, The Park Avenue Diner, 107 Park Avenue, Stroudsburg, PA exploded. The explosion was blamed on a leak of bottled propane after the installation of a new stove. Thankfully, there were no fatalities, as the diner had closed early that night.
It looks like what is now Compton’s Pancake House was built on the site after the remains of the old diner were cleared away. Photos
