Palace Saloon

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Palace Saloon

Built in 1878 as a haberdashery, this building became a bar around 1900. Its original tin ceilings, mosaic floors and much of its design elements remain, as do some of its former patrons. The ghosts of a Rockefeller and a Carnegie are rumored to be among these who linger here, but Uncle Charlie is the most active of the place’s spirit set. Uncle Charlie, a former bartender, lived in the building for more than 50 years. When he passed away in 1960, some maintain he never actually left. Evidence of this may be heard on the old piano, which Charlie has been known to play even though its keys are encased in Plexiglass.

  1. I am a local here and these are very true. My mother was bartender there for many years and told about the Many souls that remain there as well as a local hero to some, also former bartender Hunter, who can be seen swinging the light above the bar back and fourth. Although he may be the only one you’re able to see on a busy night as it is a favorite local hot spot, I doubt you’ll hear old Charlie unless your alone in the back rooms quiet. My mom has told me lots of story’s about late night closing seeing strange men walking about and threatening to call the cops as the man disappeared in front of her…. a must see for tourists with or without a ghost in mind.
