1. The Arcade Bar Marker
[Photo caption:]
This photo was taken in the 1920ís of the Arcade Bar from Main Street. At this time two stores occupied the building.
Inscription. 1914 This is the approximate year that this structure was rebuilt to be the Arcade Bar. During Prohibition a soda and candy shop operated for a handful of years here. In the early 1940ís the building was converted to the “Sportsmanís Club” and operated as a saloon and cafe until the building fell into disrepair in the late nineties. The current renovation includes the original mahogany bar refurbished by the Berkners in 2005.
