  4. Good and Drunk: Lost Saloons, Breweries and Brothels of Phoebus

    December 6, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    @

    Community historian Tim Receveur returns to share stories from his latest highly anticipated book about Phoebus, a town with a colorful and checkered past, and today one of the most vibrant and creative districts of Hampton.


    It's hard to believe, but Phoebus was once like the Wild West. A place where alcohol flowed freely 24 hours a day at saloons running the length of Mellen and Mallory Street, and a red-light district with brothels providing their services day and night along with riots, gun fights on the streets, salacious murders, and legendary tales of revenge.


    Early Phoebus had "more of the appearance of a new settlement on the western frontier" than a Southern city with centuries of history. And the people who settled in this community were most definitely pioneers in every sense. This book is an attempt to capture some of the stories and remember the people from the golden age of Phoebus saloons before Prohibition.


    "Good and Drunk" is available in the gift shop for $20. Museum members enjoy a 10% discount. Check out Tim's other books, as well as a variety of other works of local history and historical fiction for the bookworms on your holiday gift list! Join today at www.hamptonhistorymuseum.org/membership


    After Tim's talk debuts on Facebook Live, it will be found under our videos tab, and later on our YouTube playlist https://tinyurl.com/v5gdhqz and website www.hamptonhistorymuseum.org
