Boggstown, Indiana has quite the tale to tell. It was run by farmers up until Mr. Boggs decided he wanted in on some of the tobacco money. The farmers, knowing that tobacco would deplete their soil, rotated crops every year. Some years, there was more money than others. Mr. Boggs did not like this. He insisted on tobacco every year, and the inevitable happened. The mill had to shut down. The farmers had to rebuild their soil. So what did Mr. Boggs do? He opened a speakeasy right in the back of the general stores. The church didn't like this, so they shut it down. The general store slowly changed hands and eventually became a cabaret, which it still is today.
