AN OLD NEW TAVERN
This building was built in 1887 at Shelby and the northeast corner of Stonewall streets. The building housed Zeigler's Saloon and Grocery and the Zeigler family lived on the premises. Frank Zeigler was born in Louisville and was considered a prominent business man in the community. Zeigler held the position of Vice President of Falls City Brewing Company and had business interests in the Grocer's Baking Company and the Merchants Ice and Cold Storage Company. The business was always open, even through Prohibition. The building had the most famous dance floor in Louisville, along with the Fontaine Ferry Park Dance Floor. In its heyday, the bar housed an antique clock, an old gas pump, a carousel horse and a wooden Indian.
