The Hub Saloon
Date: January 14, 2013 10:23PM
I recently watched the 1930s movie "In Old Chicago" which takes place before and during the Chicago fire. Although so much of the scenarios and names in the mov ie were totally fabricated, there was mention of a saloon called "The Hub", on Madison. I started doing research and could find nothing on it other than a comment that the guys that tried stealing Abraham Lincolns body met there to plan their scheme. I tried Googling "Historic Chgo saloons", "The Hub tavern" and others, but could find nothing. Was The Hub just another one of the movies fabrications? Anyone out there with some info?
