Tales of Moore, Indiana

bymsnomer68©

The town was pretty much the same, yet had changed. Rosalie still tended bar, the regulars still came in to drink their beers, shoot pool, and tell their tales of “The Maze” as it became to be known. Of course, through the years, the story had been altered and embellished upon, and has faded into the category of urban; or in this case; rural legend.
