The Corner Saloon was located just outside of Ada, Oklahoma in the 1890s. Owned by Joe Allen and Jesse West, it was a bad place. There were claims that 50 killings took place there in the 17 years it was in operation. In the early 1900s, they sold the saloon to Jim McCarty (they later tried a hostile takeover). The three would meet again.
McCarty served as a guard at the Ada jail when vigilantes took Allen, West, Barry Burrell and Jim Miller and lynched them in 1909 (photo). The Corner was closed a few months earlier.
