red-onion-saloonOriginally built as a  whorehouse in 1897, the Red Onion Saloon was moved to its present location in 1914.  Located on the corner of 2nd & Broadway, the saloon is a two-story white building with dark trim and a storefront window. 

There are several reported hauntings in the Red Onion Saloon.  The shadowy figure of a woman can sometimes be seen watering non-existant plant in the Madame’s Room upstairs.  Police have been called to investigae footsteps in the second floor hallway, but have found nothings.  The scent of strong perfume lingers in the air.  many locals believe the saloon is haunted by the spirit of a former owner.

The ghost of a railroad bandit named “Railroad Bill” is said to haunt the pine woods along the railraod track running near the towns of Piney Grove, Elewy, and Nymph.  Railroad bill was said to be a vagrant that hopped trains and got in trouble with the law.  He was known as a bit of a Robin Hood, as he would provide food and money to poor people in the area. 

Somehow he always managed to evade capture.  People started spreading stories that he had supernatural powers that allowed him to change into animal form and was only vulnerable to silver bullets. Other tales said that he had the power to disable the tracking abilities of the bloodhounds on his trail.

railroad-billWhatever the real story, the man who was believed to be “Railroad Bill” was gunned down in March of 1896.  His spirit is said to remain, appearing with a big smile on his face.
