Historical Saloon in Pilot Knob, Missouri

This is my grandfather's saloon of the early 1900's. The building was originally built before 1858 and was owned by the Amelung family from 1905 - 2003.

I was told (but have never seen it) that there is a secret door that can be opened to view into the saloon area from the steps.

This is what the Amelung Saloon and home looks like today.

This building is a private residence and is not open to visitors.
