There were some clubs off of Lake Street called The Top Hat and The Two Way Inn. There was also a beer joint by the state line called The Quality Cabin.

I don't know what the name of it was but I have heard there was one on Lake St. I think at the corner of Lake and 4th Ave. I remember my dad and another elderly gentleman telling me about the moonshine steel when they were young, probably in the 30's.

I stand correctd. I guess it is short for distillery. They also told me where it was located. I talked to someone who owns the property and they said that explains all the old bottles and jars they found.

I used to go there when I came home from Viet Nam. It was a pretty nice plac to go.
I know when I was alittle boy I would go to wall street to get my dad. Every building on that street was a bar back then.
I have always heard RILEY'S Pig was the oldest in town.

The Kingsway was built in1935 by Walter Cole and sold to Joe Coats in1938.
But there were bars here before then. The brown pig was also built by Cole before he built the Kingsway and that was ran by Coats who then bought the Kingsway.
The Brown Pig was where Oinky's is now or close by.

Do you know if it was there in the 50's? I guess the road was dirt then.
