|The Pastime, Roslyn, WA|
I am looking to confirm this, but if the claims made on the Pastime's MySpace site (and in Michael Caldwell's "Watering Holes of the Northwest) are correct, this may be one of the two oldest bars in the state of Washington. From the site:
"The Pastime was originally named The Palace, back in 1885. It would have been the oldest operating bar in the state of Washington, but for two years during prohibition, it became Owens Meat Market. At that time, it was the first refrigerated meat house in the state. During the 1920's it also endured some major remolding [sic] and in 1974 became known as Jean's Pastime. In 1990 it changed owners again to Lonnie and Jody, our current owners. It is the oldest commercial building in Roslyn and is said to be haunted. There has been two suicide deaths, by gunshot. One in the 1920's and the other in the 1980's. Our closing bartenders have reported strange noises and their have been the sound of people playing pool after the doors have been locked."
