Alfred Chunn's Tavern

Record #:
Chunn's tavern embraced the spirit of the Wild West, notorious for drinking, fighting and vulgarity. The tavern's history stretched back to the late 18th century built on the French Broad River trail four miles west of Marshall, which ran through western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. Chunn was a notorious character not only for the rowdy bar he owned but he was also a slave trader and thief himself. Chunn met his death while disguised as an African American attempted to rob a highway traveler.
