Home Features Community HUNT FOR HISTORY WEEK 16


Sponsored by Morgan County Historical Society


Congrats to Kimberly Carter Rich (Facebook) and Brittany Kuhner (Instagram) for being the first to correctly identify the last Hunt for History location:  Morgan Liquor (133 Commercial St).  Check out this week’s photo clue below and participate in the Hunt for History!  All correct answers get entered into our grand prize drawing.  The first to correctly identify wins a prize.  See below for full list of rules.

133 Commercial Street was built around 1917.  The earliest photo we have available shows that it was the Mint Saloon in those early years.  With prohibition entering the state it is unclear how long the Saloon lasted.  At one point is was a Pool Hall.  During the time that it was The Sportique, it was a filming location for the cult classic film Troll 2.  Lynn Boyce, the owner says they paid her around $200.  She says it ended up not being worth it since they left her shop in poor condition.  Many businesses have occupied this location over the years, some of which include Country Heart Beats Boutique, Halo, and Glassed Up!.  Morgan Liquor currently resides in this beautifully remodeled building.
