Operated by Modern Day Veterans Post 295, Fugley’s (aka The Assembly of the Drunken Brethren Church) is a bar & grill built from a converted century-old church. (Or older? I found a reference to a church founded in town in 1874, which would be consistent with the construction style.)

Not surprisingly this has offended a few people — there is a small Facebook group opposed to this bar — but I got the impression that the majority in the community enjoy the gathering spot and are happy seeing the historic building in use instead of sitting empty.

The building’s history results in the interior being one of the most beautiful bars I have ever visited (my pictures don’t do it justice), with much of the original woodwork exposed.

Where the pulpit once stood there are now some games and a stage, where there were once pews there are now bar tables and pool tables. The bar itself is V-shaped and occupies most of one of the long walls.

Thanks to it being happy hour this was the cheapest bar of the day, with $1 draws. So I broke my rule and stayed for another round. :)
