Anti-Saloon League's Home Goes Wet
Westerville, Ohio, was the home to the Anti-Saloon League (ASL), and itself had been dry long before the National Prohibition that the League was so instrumental in bringing about. Part of Westerville issued liquor licenses starting in 1998, but the historic district that contained the ASL headquarters continued to be dry. The dry days are gone now, though: the electorate of Westerville ended the alcohol ban last week, voting by a 3-to-1 margin to approve liquor licenses for three historic district restaurants. What next, will a Pro-Saloon League move in? This AP article provides the details.
