This is Menchalville. These are the four bars that where in the town. There is only one surviving bar left. Its now called the Iron Buffalo. It would be the building in the lower left corner. The bar in lower right was Reindles supper club which is closed. The bar in upper right was called the Hitching Post and is also closed. The bar in upper left was called Antionsons place or something like that. Also closed
