It is said that the Owl Cafe has at least two ghost. The building that houses the cafe once housed the notorious Tiger Saloon. It was here on Septemeber 1, 19=876, that Bulldog Kate Miller got into a screaming match with fellow prostitue "Hog-Eye" Mary Irwin. The argument escalated, taking the fight to the street. THere Mary Irwin pulled a knife out and klled Kate Miller. Mary Irwin was taken to jail, while Kate went to the morgue.
Unfortunately Kate was buried in a lonely spot out at the Eureka Cemetery. Not pleaseed with her final resting place, it is said she haunted the old Tiger Saloon, reported way in the day when it was still called that. Miller's disembodied voice and apparition has been seen and heard at the saloon.
Another unscheduled fatality (aka murder) happened upstairs, which accounts for the second known ghost at the Owl Cafe. On May 2, 1880, BIlly Martin and John Brent were drinking together at the saloon, until things got a bit out of control. Neither man was afraid of the other, which only leads to trouble.
Martin had ridden with the sheriff's posse that had gone out to a canyon at Fish Creak a year prior and killed five men who worked in the charcoal ovens ... in cold blood! On this night, at the Tiger Saloon, karma caught up with him. As Brent boasted, Martin jumped up and started shooting. Unfortunately for him, Brent was faster and Martin was dead. But not completely dead. It is said that Martin now haunts the second floor.
