  1. The buffalo bar was a brothel upstairs is a fact. There is a story of a prostitute who was thought to be murdered by a cowboy who was subsequently hung for the murder by an angry mob. The young woman’s apparition is seen with an oil lamp upstairs by passers by. Her spirit is said to not be able to rest as she knew her death was a suicide and the young cowboy was innocent.

  2. On 2013 at the new years party in the bar two cowboys got into an argument and in the course of the fight one stabbed the other, pushed outside by the other patrons the fight continued with fists outside the bar in the street in front of the bar.
