A staple in Ligonier Township is shutting down for good.

“It’s a historic site, been around since 1925. It’s had big names that sang there and played there so it is a surprise and it’s something we were just as surprised as anybody,” Ligoneir Township Manager Terry Carcella said.

In its heyday, it attracted the likes of Dean Martin and Perry Como.

While some neighbors would like to see it return as is, the future remains uncertain.
