The Brewery Tap is located close to the Donnellen crypt. Built in 1867, it housed the remains of Henry Donnellen and his business partner, both of whom were killed trying to defuse a Civil war cannonball. As time went on, the crypt was encased in concrete supporting a more modern Franklin Street bridge. Now it's a small unmarked niche on a concrete embankment. A small brick arch is the only hint of what it once was. [Click here] or [Here for more info!]
