  1. They are really haunted the ghosts don’t harm any body but they are there, from the barmaid that died around 1933 to the bartender from 1910 behind bar and prohibition works in basement around two prohibitions tunnels.

  2. The barmaids name is Bertha Meinberg niece to J.B. Meinberg I kept hearing that name silently when I was there Saturday. She born 1892 in Saginaw to Clement Meienberg and Frances Doerr

  3. All I heard silently Saturday night a meinbergs was the name Bertha while thinking of the ghost of the barmaid. Using Hoyt Libraries computers I found that around 1903 there was bartender names Reinhold Kuehn who worked at Meinbergs with a with named Bertha. Bertha died in 1907 and Reinhold died 1910. Which is about era I placed the bartender ghost and he is there. Bertha may have helped him and still may helping him at work.
