Initially slated for the auction block, the Whistle Stop has instead been sold. Owners Mike and Lynn Cummins made the announcement this week, saying they had instead sold the acclaimed restaurant to a new owner. The couple did say Thursday afternoon that the new owner is local, but did not disclose the identity of the new owner. The Cummins’ bought the restaurant from original owners James and Idell Sego 16 years ago. The restaurant has won numerous awards over it’s 44 year history, and has become a cornerstone of the Glendale community.
