This bar once operated as Berger's Grocery and is known to be haunted by the ghost of daughter Mary Berger. Stories say she hanged herself in 1962 when her parents would not let her go on a date with a boy. Her apparition has been spotted at the bar ever since.

  • Attic of Judge’s Bench

    Back in the spring/summer of 2001, I went to watch a friend of mine perform at Judge’s Bench. Got there early for the sound check and warm up. She tells me, this place is pretty spooky, wanna explore the upper floors? We meandered through the rooms, pretty sparse, and on the top floor, we pushed aside a curtain to show the attic room with clothes hanging across the center of the room, a floor length mirror and boxes on the other side. It was really warm in there and I told Gina I was ready to go back downstairs. We turned around to go out to the original room and we both looked back and saw the previously still empty hangers, now swinging back and forth, every other hanger. That’s when we ran downstairs to the bar.
