The Mine Shaft Tavern

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  The Mine Shaft Tavern

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.
