Sunday Dinner At Crawfords
The restaurant was run by Crawford Clayton Williams and his father-in-law Roscoe King. It was very much family as even his mother, Lavenia Williams, worked as a waitress. The Williams and Kings were from the Eldorado section of Dorchester county. His brother, Winfield Williams, ran Winfield's restaurant on Isabella street in Salisbury. Crawford Williams would die of a heart attack in 1965. Roscoe King would die in 1959. After Mr Kings death they had an auction of the property (the restaurant continued in operation) and below is the restaurant property, which shows the size of the restaurant.
I believe DP&L eventually purchased the property and tore down the restaurant and house that was there to give them an open front yard.
