Paddy Malone’s, at 700 W. Main St., is the 10th oldest continually operating pub west of the Mississippi River. The building, thought to be built in 1863 and used as a blacksmith shop, began offering good times and libations in 1870, when Victor Frank opened West End Saloon. He and his family lived above the saloon.
