Program Announcement: Saloons in Early Sandusky

Wednesday, June 27, 6:30PM

The neighborhood tavern was often a center of social life for men (rarely women) in Sandusky, particularly before the Prohibition era. It was a place to meet friends, make business contacts (or even conduct business), listen to music, or sing along with others, or just serve as a respite from the drudgery of work. Immigrants often brought their traditions with them to the saloon. And sometimes trouble came to the saloon. Join Archives Librarian Ron Davidson as he presents a brief overview of early saloons and their role in Sandusky’s culture.
