This structure goes by lots of names. Originally it was the main building of The Wandawega Hotel, built during Prohibition. It served as a speakeasy and you can still see the cutouts in the battleship linoleum floor where the bar sat. Behind the bar was a trap door that went down to the rathskellar. One of the novel features is the series of three locking doors one had to pass through to get to the office. This building’s stories are better told over a glass of whiskey in front of the fireplace. So the next time you’re here, ask about the mob, the Madame, the raccoon, the chapel, Father B, Annie’s Saloon and Mass in the Grass.
