Back in February the Buffalo Head was listed for sale, then taken off the market, and now it's listed for sale again. This time you can own the classic restaurant for $525,000. 

Over the past two years, the newest owners have made several improvements and upgrades including approximately $80,000 for a new septic system, newer entrance with handicap ramp, new rooftop HVAC unit that works along with the HWBB system. You’ll also notice the dinning rooms have new paint, lighting and the main carpet was recently updated.

According to the Utica OD, owner Debra Timmerman is ready to retire. She wants to hand off the 9,500-square-foot space to a new owner, and hand it over ready to operate from day one:

“It’s phenomenal,” she said. “Somebody could do a lot with it. The local people have been great.”

“We will stay open ’til it changes hands,” she said. “It’s a turnkey operation. It really has so much potential.”

The Buffalo Head is famously named for the stuffed bison head immigrant loggers used to identify it during train stops in the 1920s. Since those days, the restaurant has also operated under the names Morrison’s Inn and Lockwood Inn. For decades the Buffalo Head was made famous for its large portions and reasonable prices. You’d never leave the restaurant hungry, you’d leave with plenty of leftovers.

Also for the paranormal lovers, the restaurant is haunted. Kids laughing and footsteps have been heard and reported.
