Legends Sports Bar in the Mariah Moore House (Bowling Green, Kentucky)

Legends Sports Bar in the Mariah Moore House, 801 State Street, Bowling Green, Kentucky, U.S.A. This building was built in 1818 by a co-founder of Bowling Green, George Moore and his wife Elizabeth. One of their 5 children Mariah lived there until 1888 when she passed on and thus the name of the house. In 1995 a fire destroyed much of the place but some valuable parts were save such as the bar. The bar was built in the 1800's by Brunswick (pool table fame) and taken out of a bar in Chicago and refurbished. The original brick building was salvaged and now is on the National Registry of Historic Places as the oldest building in Bowling Green.
They have a beautiful restaurant attached. Since it was a Sunday at noon, I was there for lunch. I found out that in Kentucky, they do not serve alcohol state wide until 1 pm. For Lunch I had the Crab cake sandwich on a pretzel bun, wow was it ever good! From what I could see the food that others were having was very good. If you did not know it, Bowling Green is the home of the Corvette factory and the National Corvette Museum. It was a great experience and great food!
