Name of bar
« on: May 05, 2017, 10:30:27 PM »

On the corner of Dunbar and Telegraph was a bar. Was the name Tress and Ken? Did it have other names?

On the corner of Dunbar and Telegraph was a bar. Was the name Tress and Ken? Did it have other names?

Are you talking about the NE corner (where the 5/3 bank was recently converted to the Lawyer's Title office)?  When we first moved here there was an old WWII style quonset hut near the corner and then a mostly vacant parcel except for near Plum Creek where there were still some remnants of the former roadside park (what we would call a rest area today). 

The SE corner was vacant (part of Snow's nursery property I assume) until they built the Sunoco gas station.

Hi-Lite was there on the NW corner although they added the strip mall later.

The old gas station that is now the feed store looks like it has been there since the 50s at least...   same for the building next door to the south that is LineX.

personna, if you have prior memories of that corner and it's development over the years please post more!!!

I have seen an aerial photo of the corner and it seems like there was a building closer to the corner than the quonset hut...   would that have been where the bar was?  Seems like maybe it burned at some point although I'm not positive on that one.

I did not find the address:

Theresa and Kenneth Yenor owned and operated Tres and Ken's Bar in Monroe from 1960 to 1974.

If I remember correctly, after Tres and Kens, it was called Fat Freddies.  I used to go in there all the time with my father when it was Tres and Kens

It did have a few other names - they just escape me now.   Willy's 2?

Yes, that is the name I have heard before.  Still before my time in Monroe though.
