Attention In-N-Out fans: a 100-square foot replica of the very first In-N-Out burger stand recently opened in Baldwin Park, CA.

Complete with details like an antique Coldspot refrigerator, vintage fryers, and two-way speakers in the drive-through lane (which, at the time, were revolutionary), it's an exact double of the original stand, built 66 years ago by founders Harry and Esther Snyder. There's no food, though. The building is intended as a showpiece.

The location of the replica stand, less than a mile from the In-N-Out Burger Company Store at I-10 and Francisquito Avenue, is close to the site of the original stand, built in 1948. It was demolished years ago when Interstate 10 was built.

For a closer look (and more photos) check out Nancy Luna's article on the Orange County Register.

Want to drop by and see a slice of history for yourself? The stand is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
