Capt. Tony’s building was used as the first morgue on the island. The coroner buried his daughter under the floor in what is now the pool room. She is still there! The tree growing inside thebar was the official Key West “Hanging Tree”….. 75 peoplewere hanged from that tree.The tombstone at it’s basedoes not mark a real graveCapt. Tony’s is reported to be haunted. Legend has it, that one of the executed, a woman accused of killing her husbandand child, can be seen frequenting thebar, wearing the same nightgownin which she was hanged.
