Whitman is Our Hometown
If you live in Whitman, Massachusetts you may know that is notable as being the place where the chocolate chip cookie was invented. The Toll House Inn was established in 1930 by Kenneth and Ruth Graves Wakefield. Toll House chocolate chip cookies are named after the inn. The original toll house had been built in 1709 and had a rich history of providing a night's solace to weary travelers. On New Year's Eve 1984, the Toll House Inn burned down from a fire that started in the kitchen. The inn was not rebuilt. The site is marked with a historical marker, and that land is now home to a Wendy's restaurant and Walgreens pharmacy. The small town today is mostly residential, with a small town forest in the northeast corner of town.
