92 Main street has a long and mysterious history. Fires, local rumors and even a murder whirl around the corner lot of Main & Oak street in Delaware Water Gap.
Some say the building is haunted. Others say just superstitions. In the late night hours when the restaurant is still and quiet is when things start to stir.
Maybe just sounds of an old building, creaks in the wall or the wind howling through our sleepy mountain town. But for those of us who know the history of 92
main, it is hard to think it isn't more.
"When my dad first bought the restaurant in 2004 we contemplated having a seance to kind of 'cleanse' the place. The last 3 owners had some pretty bad luck.
In fact, only one of the three was even around to tell of it. With the hustle of getting things open it just got pushed to the back burner and we never
did… but that' s not to say we don't believe. We do. Especially those of us who are here late at night when the restaurant is still and quiet. With so many
tragedies involving the owners of the past I felt that we had to make some kind of pact…an agreement to the land, the building, the possible spirits to keep
us safe. So when people ask if I think it is haunted I tell them this. I truly believe there is a presence here…and after 7 years I feel that they must be
fond of us…I asked them to watch over the restaurant and all of us…and that is something I feel without a doubt that they are doing."

Rumors was a bustling bar and night spot with well known bands and many local musicians.
The boisterous bar attracted an eclectic group of people and was known around town as a happening place to be.
Sadly, the owner Bobby Stetler's life was cut short in a fatal automobile accident.
Brownies was a family run casual dining restaurant and bar which attracted many locals as well as tourists
traveling through the Delaware Water Gap. In 1998 an early morning fire swept through eight boarding rooms
above the restaurant causing severe fire and water damage. The fire-gutted building sat vacant for over 5 years
in the heart of town with "aesthetic crime" famously spray painted across the facade.
