General Information:

This place seems to go back to the 1940's. In the 80's it was a hot spot for Olivet College kids and featured live bands. It eventually came to be known as a biker hangout until it closed around 2008. Evidently there was an electrical fire at that time. The bar was once owned by Elsie Williams and also Lysander Maples during a different time period. The building sits empty as of 2023 which is a shame because it sits right on the lake.
