Before they served up that great French Onion soup at the White Horse Inn, this building was a farm house in Milford along the road to Nashua and can be seen in this photo. It appeared in the Milford Cabinet in 1980 when the White Horse Inn was still a busy restaurant and bar. The photo was taken from the East side of Ponemah Hill road looking down the hill in the early 1900’s. If taken today, the field with the apple trees would be the Souhegan Valley Mobile Home Park and the farm house is where Giorgio’s is today.

    Lived in Fitchburg MA and many times we would drive up to eat the great food. I remember it has a vintage Dixie Cup sales display on the wall. Dixie Cowdry was in fitchburg. Was the building vacant when in burned?

      Hi Karen – Thanks for your comment! It was a great place to dine and see a band. It was vacant when it burned, the restaurant had been closed for a couple of years.

    They had the best clam chowder. My son was very little back then. We would walk there twice a week to enjoy a nice bowl of their clam chowder served with fresh baked sourdough bread. I would love to have the recipe if anyone who worked there still has it.

    I miss the White Horse so much! The creamy chowder, the thick slab of pizza with the sourdough crust, the bread floating on top of a huge bowl of savory soup, chock-full of slow-roasted onion. The sandwiches were epic and the drinks were divine. Loved that place!
