The restaurant called Poogan’s Porch is housed in a 1888 home. Poogan was a friendly neighborhood stray dog who started to hang out on the porch when the restaurant opened, and he was adopted by the owner. Eventually Poogan passed away, and his little grave sits on the property. The restaurant is believed to be haunted by Zoe St. Amand. She and her sister Elizabeth, lived here in 1900. Zoe was a schoolteacher who wore long black Puritan-style dresses and round glasses. Elizabeth died in 1945, and Zoe became lonely and was eventually taken to St. Francis Hospital, where she died. Zoe’s apparition has been spotted at the restaurant several times. She even has been seen waving from upper-story windows.
