Keep an eye on this page. New old photos will be added as we receive them. Our thanks to Chris and Marty Weiser, owners of the Olde Bluebird Garage and the Bluebird Inn. (The Bluebird Inn is leased from them and operated by another family) for the photos of the Bluebird and Aspetuck Corners. Our thanks to Dick Greiser, Greiser’s Store for the 1931 photo of the store.
The Bluebird Inn and Garage was originally opened in 1919. It was purchased by the Weiser family, Marty Weiser’s dad, in 1940. Marty’s son, Chris now operates the garage. The Inn is leased to another family who operate it. The reason it’s called The Old/Olde Bluebird is that at one point someone else opened a hot dog stand right across the street and called it the Bluebird so the name of the original was changed to “Old Bluebird.” There’s a picture of the counterfeit Bluebird below also.
The Bluebird Garage was used in the filming of the 2007 movie Reservation Road starring Juoquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Connelly, Mira Sorvino, Elle Fanning et al.
The Date of this postcard/picture is not known. This second or counterfeit Bluebird sat about in the middle of what is now the little league field parking lot at Toth Park.
