They say the only constant in any city is change, and that’s true for Tempe, which has seen a string of hometown favorites close their doors over the years. 

However, they aren’t forgotten.

For those wanting to take a trip down memory lane, the Tempe History Museum is showcasing a collection of signs from historic Tempe, from Ted’s Hot Dogs to Hayden Flour Mill. 

The Show went to the museum to check out some Tempe gems that were gone too soon.
