1938:: New Owners

In 1938, Archie Wilson partnered with Jack Kane to continue running the Mint Bar. The rattlesnake skin and set of longhorns seen above the cash register were Jack’s contribution to the bar’s decor.┬áJack ran the bar until his death in the early 1940’s when his widow Maude became the first woman to operate the Mint, leasing it for $75 a month from the Sheridan Investment Company.
