The Longest Bar

November 7, 2013
Times Leader

RECOGNIZED AS being "The longest bar in the World," was located on North Lincoln Ave., Bridgeport, was operated under the name of "The Acorn Liquor 60". The bar was 140 feet long, nearly half the length of a football field, and employed fourteen bartenders regularly. Because the State of West Virginia was dry prior to national prohibition, the saloons in Bridgeport and other Eastern Ohio communities did a flourishing business. Wilson Furniture is located there now. Submitted by Joanie Appenzeller
