Bye Bye Rum Runners…

Time has run out for the burned out shell of the old Rum Runners Tavern.

The building-eaters moved in behind the death fences earlier this week…

… and quick work was made of another historic Windsor site.

Back when the fire struck, I ran this post that contained the infamous history of the place.

Like it’s former neighbor down the road, the late Bronson’s (torched by an arsonist in September 2003), Rum Runners is now just another footnote of local history, and a vacant lot in a depressed area of town.
