An inn, a popular nightspot for many years in TS has had more than it's fair share of ghosts over the years and I am sure they now find themselves confused at being in a senior center. The house behind the bar was the site of a horrible murder and as kids we used to hear footsteps coming up the steps in the middle of the night and then stopping at the top and never going anywhere.|
There was also a local legend that a man carrying a gunny sack walked the
streets of Taylor springs late at night hoping to catch small children and carry them away.|

Comment by anonymous: Don't know what time period you grew up in TS; but I lived there for 21 years and during the time of the murder. Never heard of any ghosts or a man with a gunny sack.|
Comment by Kenmoroney: Believe the inn was the log cabin and heard there was a killing there.
Comment by Marci: I lived there. Grew up there 50s and 60s; my grandmother owned the log cabin. The murder in the house was my aunt Doris ( my cousin buddy's mom) no one was ever killed in the bar itself but a body of a local lady was found dead in her car parked outside the tavern.
