Look inside one of the fanciest McDonald's restaurants in the world, built inside a 150-year-old colonial mansion

The McDonald's location is in Freeport, a small seaside town in Maine.
In 1984, the historic Gore House was converted into Freeport's only McDonald's.
The town of Freeport has strict building design codes, and McDonald's wanted to build a location in a residential zone.
However, McDonald's was eventually granted a permit to remodel the Gore House.
"What we are doing there is something we probably have never done before in terms of design and the amount of time and effort involved," said Stephen Leroy, manager of McDonald's media relations, in 1984.
Inside, it looks like a McDonald's but still retains that classic New England style.
The corporation built a drive-thru on the building's side, too.
The McDonald's is known to serve lobster rolls in the summer, but the menu item isn't always available every year.
It's not the only McDonald's in the US without golden arches or a modern design.
