"Casey Moore’s Oyster House, in Tempe Arizona, is an Irish Pub style restaurant. It is very charming and a frequented spot for ASU students and Tempe residents. But with this following, there are many legends, involving its resident ghosts and their haunts, multipling over the years.
No one really knows what spirits lurk the restaruant, but there is no doubt, this is a very haunted and spooky place. Following the historic path of his, many have suggestted, the ghosts could be that of the property's original owner, William and Mary Moeur. Built by the Moeur's in 1910, this historic house today is a restaurant owned by Patty St. Vincent.
Referenced in a published article in the Wrangler News, Patty contributes the many strange occurrences that have occured in this historic property over the years. Since running the Casey Moore’s restaurant, there have been four different families who have lived in the house across the street. Each family, at some point or another, called the police during the night, reporting seeing a woman upstairs in the second floor of the restaurant, when it was supposed to be empty. In addition, not once had the security alarm detect presence in this supposedly empty building.
One time St. Vincent and her daughter set an upstairs dining room before leaving for the night. They were the last ones out and the first in the next morning. Upon returning, they confirmed the alarm was on and active. However, when they went upstairs, the chairs were all lined up in a row leading across the room, the napkins moved and all the silverware fanned out on each table instead of in their table settings.
Another creepy story included several witnessed. A large picture came flying off a wall on its own, yet its nail was still in place in the wall. It was as if someone, or something, actually lifted the frame and threw it across the floor.
What historic tales could contribute to these hauntings? Built in 1910, the most famous, of all, as about a girl who lived upstairs, in (what used to be) a former boarding house and strangled upstairs by her crazed boyfriend. The restaurant's manager, Michael Loney, and co-owner, Gavin Rutledge, have verified this is one very haunted place. They admit to having a few close encounters with anonymous apparitions on their own over the years."
