There were at least two saloons in Flat lick in the past. One was in the old stone building that still stands near the mouth of Sandy Branch. It was called the "Tip Toe Inn". The building later became a Community Center and game room. The other was located where Unity Church stands today, near Flat Lick School. There were lots of fights and shootings in and near the saloons. Both went out of business when Prohibition banned the sale of alcohol across America in 1919. Prohibition lasted until 1933, and led to a surge in illegal moonshine making throughout those years and afterward.

How would you know? Why don't you discuss the history of the old stone building, near Sandy Branch, for example? If you did your homework, you'd know it started as a saloon called the "Tip Toe Inn", more than 100 years ago. I guess your name says it are a "lie er"...would be nice if you knew how to correctly spell the word liar.
