Nordman's Bar, 216 East Main St., N. Manchester

Sometime after 1933, Donald Hatfield (we think) owned the East End Tavern at this address. Charles Betten, and then Joe Mosier, purchased and ran the tavern. Wade Clark also owned it, but we don't know where he fits in. Bill Nordman bought the tavern in the late 1950s or early 60s. This had been a Tavern for many years, and is to this day.
