This photo shows the interior of Eddies Place, also known as Eddies Warm Friends Tavern. Initially opened after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933 by Edward and Veryl Scharer, Eddies Place was located at 1715 11th St. Former World Heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey visited this location as a friend of Eddies in the 1950s. On July 1, 1959, this property was sold to Edward Bregenzer and his son, Marco. They formed the popular Marcos Supper Club by combining this site with two adjoining properties. Lance Sathoff is collecting interior and exterior photos, advertising pieces, drink tokens, and stories from local saloons, taverns, and bars. Items can be scanned or photographed and will be returned. They will be used in future publications to benefit The Green County Historical Society. Sathoff can be contacted at lsathoff@wekz.net or 608-558-1038. (Photo supplied by the Green County Historical Society)
