The historic saloon, built in 1900, was originally Blackman’s Dry Goods Store. But it’s been a saloon (and, some say, bordello) since around 1910. Legend has it that a policeman named Henry was stabbed to death here while trying to break up a fight. His ghost is said to remain, pinching ladies in the restroom or hanging out on the basement stairs. Reports say that although the second floor of the building is now offices, ghosts from the saloon remain there too: a man in a bowler hat and two female spirits, Kathleen, believed to be the bordello’s madam, and Amelia, one of her ladies of the night. Long ago Amelia’s body mysteriously was found dead, curled up in the closet. Paranormalists investigating the place had some eerie experiences with ghostly voices and images that showed up in photographs.
