Rock Creek Tavern history

There’s a post on Metroblogging Portland about the history of McMenamins Rock Creek Tavern. It’s a highly compressed version, but I still enjoyed it. Don’t forget to read the comments, too.

Opened in the Prohibition-afflicted 1920s as a grocery and a feed store for farmers.

Served beer in 1933 about seven nanoseconds after Prohibition’s repeal. Yay, day.

Bombed in a 1935 labor union war.

Became a juke joint in the 1940s.
