Reported to be the oldest building in town, the local hangout housed in an 1800s structure is said to be haunted by John “Hooky Jack” Leary, a former local policeman and night watchman who once lived in the building until he died in a 1928 car accident. His apparition has been seen looking out the glass door, and objects such as pool balls and chairs have been known to move on their own. Some folks have reported hearing disembodied voices and footsteps as well.
