Presented by Rocky Smith, Historian and Paranormal Investigator
A prostitute killed upstairs by a jealous lover, drunken patrons shanghaied
through a basement tunnel, and a waitress half pushed, half-carried down the
basement steps by an invisible, but persistent force. Such sordid lore
envelopes the White Eagle Café & Saloon and the details become more graphic
and gruesome with each telling. At the White Eagle, the line between this world
and the other—and between fact and fiction—seems to have been thoroughly and
There is more than just good story telling going on here, though.
Psychics and paranormal investigators who have examined the place have reported
paranormal activity and a deep well of sadness dwelling on the second floor.
But don’t take their word for it, experience it for yourself on a
special 45min pre-show tour of the White Eagle with Rocky as your guide! 10 VIP
Tour & Talk Tickets will be sold allowing guests to explore the building.
This special 6pm tour will include access to one of the infamous upstairs rooms
upstairs and reserved seating for the talk. (VIP TICKETS: $20.00)
