Ottumwa Icon up for sale



An Ottumwa icon that has survived many changes in the City’s landscape for years, is up For Sale.

The Canteen, home of the original “loose meat hamburger”, and known to a lot of patrons nationwide, is up for purchase.

The Canteen has been located in the same spot, in the alley between Main and Second Streets for years, in spite of Urban Renewal, one-way and two-way traffic, and a parking ramp which had to be built OVER the top of the restaurant to accommodate its familiar location.

No word on the asking price.
