Inscription.  Carolin Harris was the owner and proprietor of Harris Steak House, which later became know as the "Mothman Diner." She was like a mother to all, always smiling when she greeted her patrons. The highlight for many was when she took time from her busy day to tell stories about the town of Point Pleasant and the legend of the Mothman. She opened Harris Steak House in 1969, two years after the collapse of the Silver Bridge in which she lost her young son Timmy and his father. Despite the tragic events, her kindness, hospitality, hard work and dedication never faltered. Carolin was instrumental in the development of Point Pleasant and will be forever in the heart of the residents and many friends who were blessed to know her.
