The former La Croquet Restaurant, now Moresi’s Chophouse, is housed in an 1857 building, is the centerpiece of a local legend that started in the 1800s. Rowdy miners were said to have gotten into a shootout, and the bullets went into a window, hitting a little girl in the street. The girl was brought into this restaurant, where she died. Her apparition is said to appear here from time to time, and her bloodstain remains under the carpet because no one has ever been able to remove it.
