She proceeded to relate to us the events of John Brown’s raid and it’s affect on the community, as well as the period up to and after the war, and how her pub was often central to these events – as a simple escape from the turmoil over a shot of whiskey, provide for social gathering to debate such events, or even to conspire plans to aid in the advancement of one side or the other.

Stop by for pictures and read up on the history if you find yourself in the area.
