Rumors are this place is haunted with images of a ghostly woman seen on the top floor window as well as near a step railing inside. Check out this site for more information about the ghostly hauntings. 06-23

Here's is Jerry's Restaurant in a shot from the late 1990's with the Copper Manor motel sign in the background. Jerry's used to be a restaurant and coffee shop chain and was known for their distinct signs, and food of course. This Jerry's is now gone. A Joe's Ribs is now at this location. Oh and by the way, the Copper Manor is now a Nite Inn. 06-23
