Looking back at Harry T. Burn

Shown here is the U-Like-It Restaurant that used to operate in Downtown Sweetwater. This restaurant was on the lower floor of the building that housed Harry T. Burn’s law office. Burn, a Niota native with strong Sweetwater ties, cast the deciding vote to pass the 19th Amendment, allowing women to vote. For a full story on Burn, see Page A10.
