Photo: The Linsmore Tavern last October, where Brian, Cheryl, Lloyd and I were entertained by The Dylan Tree cover band. We didn’t see the ghost of Dorothy Cox, but she is said to haunt the place.
Dorothy was a regular at the Linsmore until she suddenly stopped showing up in 1943. In I995, when Robertson Motors was demolished, her bones were discovered encased in concrete. The murder was never pinned on anyone, but her construction worker husband was helping build the new auto dealership at the time.
Danica and I first heard the story on one of our Jane’s Walks … free walking tours led by locals to discover, explore and connect with the city.
