Days Gone By

The fireplace was all that remained of the pub at the back of the former Guinan’s on Garrison’s Landing as renovations on the building got underway. “A lot of stories were spun, a lot of problems put aside for another day, before the warmth of that hearth,” recalled Gwendolyn Bounds, author of Little Chapel on the River, an appreciation of its proprietors and patrons. Guinan’s closed on Jan. 31, 2008.

    So many great nights at Guinans. Sad to see it go … again.

    How sad, another piece of local history gone.

    Might have spent a few moments in there… Great moments with great friends… Will never forget them all, and most of all, Jim Giunan… Don’t look for him on Wednesday… Bowling night… Oh, don’t mess with the fire…
