Many of you will remember the original Legal Tender Restaurant, which was a landmark in our region and operated in this building from 1982 until 2006. We wanted to capture the local flavor of that great establishment, and also build on the history it captured.
We celebrate the mining legacy of our area, starting with our name, which comes from the Legal Tender Mine, located across the Interstate from us. The Legal Tender Mine employed most of the locals in the Clancy area from the 1870s through the 1920s. For Fifty years, families around here prospered from the silver and gold dug from the hill. It was hard work; it was dirty work, but it made our area strong and proud.
