This might be the most beautiful fast food restaurant in the U.S., situated in a historical house.

You don’t normally associate a McDonald’s restaurant as being architecturally beautiful and grand, or refer to it as a landmark. Unless of course, you happen to visit the fast food restaurant in Long Island, just southeast of the state of New York.  Spotted by Scouting NY, the 18th century Georgian mansion can only be recognized as a fast food joint by its understated sign on the front door. It’s in a quiet neighborhood of New Hyde Park surrounded by large estates.

The mansion, known as The Denton House, was built around 1795 and renovated in the 1860s. In 1985, McDonald’s purchased the house and planned to demolish it as it was falling apart. However, after locals protested the plan to tear apart the historic building, McDonald’s decided to restore it.

See the gallery below for additional views of the mansion.
