View of the Past: Ines Foy’s West End Tavern in 1984

This week’s view is of Ines Foy’s West End Tavern at 220 W. State Street in O’Fallon as it looked in 1984.  Originally a boarding house for coal miners, the building later became a bakery under various owners and then a tavern.  Lisbeth Brown bought the structure in 1988, taking on the challenge of converting a tavern into a new home for DanceStation which is still there today.
