OVER 300 YEARS OF HISTORY
When High Noon opened its doors in July of 1974, we added to the building's colorful history. Originally constructed as a home sometime between 1750 and 1785, legend has it that the structure has been both a gambling parlor and a brothel. With the addition of two rooms in the late 1960's, it became home to a Spanish furniture maker as well as his retail storefront. The original building remained an apartment until High Noon took over--its last tenant being a Catholic nun.
Like a good ghost story?
Reminders of the buildings’ past lives are present in the spirits who still make it their home. Customers and employees alike have many stories about their supernatural encounters--look for the lady in the white dress who haunts the Santos Room. If you dare.
