Geocache Description:

Since 1879, This place has had many names. The current name was earned many years ago when a local character named Whiskey Joe was asked to leave. "They got into a good debate and Grandpa kicked him out of the bar," said Val Stoker, a third-generation Huntsville resident who manages the bar. "It was named Holkin's Bar at the time. The sign that said Holkin's Bar had a star on it. Whiskey Joe got his gun and started shooting the star. So they changed the name to the Shooting Star." ---- (Tom Wharton, The Salt Lake Tribune)

This geocache, was placed with permission of Shooting Star Saloon. Some claim that it is the oldest continuously operating saloon west of the Mississippi.
