Pixie Kitchen As A Child
by Darwin Knight
I grew up just a block north of the Pixie Kitchen on HWY 101. I well remember in the late 50's and 60's the large amount of cars that would be parked along the highway with lines of people trying to get a table.
The animated pixies that were part of the entertainment were built by a man my father knew. His widow still lives in Lincoln City.
I well remember my brother and I crossing the street on our way home from school, to stand in front of the many mirrors that made you look fat, skinny, or our favorite, high pockets.
The architecture was great as well. The owner Jerry Parks had a wonderful vision of tourism.
Later he began to sell stocks for Pixieland. And I remember working my uncles farm at 3 Rocks, hearing the train, Little Toot.
Glad to see this Web site.
I probably have some photos somewhere.
