Harvey House Museum

Business Description

Fred Harvey (1835 - 1901) was born in England and came to America at the age of fifteen. As soon as Harvey arrived, he got a job in a restaurant and started as a dishwasher. He learned the business from the ground up and in 1876 began a partnership with the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad. He was given exclusive rights to operate the lunchrooms, eating houses and hotels along the railway's routes. His attention to detail, quality and customer service changed the country's rail travel industry.
