This former quonset hut is currently the Rock-It Club. In the past, it was Duffy's Tavern and possibly the King Tut.
One local story even claims Hank Williams, Sr. died in the parking lot. Nobody really knows the exact spot of his passing. His final night's drive was on Route 19, which this quonset hut is located on. Plus, he (or his driver) did hire a relief driver in this town. When Hank's death was discovered further up the road in Oak Hill, he had been dead for some time.
Large addition on right end.
