The original Mine Shaft Tavern was destroyed by fire on Christmas Day, 1945. The current one has been operating since 1947 and is rumored to be haunted by a spirit who has developed an attachment to employee there. According to the employee, it greeted her with a stroke on the cheek each day, and if she didn’t tell is “Good morning,” it would shove her or take coffee cups from her hands.
