A Saloon No Longer
This story was published by The Daily Ypsilanti Press on Tuesday, May 2, 1913. With John Kings’ passing from the saloon at 304 East Congress Street (now East Michigan Ave.) passes one saloon from the city; and incidentally passes the life of that building as a saloon. It, as well as the saloon at 309 East Congress Street, run by William A. Moore, are within the 500 foot limit, prescribed by law, about a school house, to be kept free from saloons. It will not be rented toa prospective salon keeper in the future. Mr. King is moving from the building because the proprietress will not put in the improvements he deems necessary, as he says. It is within 500 feet of the Woodruff school.
