By the time a moose head, product of self-made millionaire Charles Chapman’s decades ago hunt, was given to its owner’s grandnephew, its final home was in question. It found a home in the appropriately and ironically named The Moose Café. Through it, the restaurant was given a conversation piece and connection with an important historical figure. For seven years, Chapman was the owner of the National Register of Historic Places listed, nineteenth century constructed Smith-McDowell House.
