According to town lore, the current location of Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria is the site where Will Harris' infamous massacre occurred in 1906. Will Harris, a gang member at the time, arrived drunk at his girlfriend's sister's apartment after he was unable to locate his girlfriend. A fight broke out, resulting in two police officers being called to the scene. Harris, armed with a rifle, shot at them, killing one and seriously injuring the other. He proceeded to make his way down to the street, where he shot and killed three civilians, a police office, and a dog. After fleeing to South Asheville, Harris was cornered by a mob of angry citizens, and after a brief standoff, the mob opened fire, riddling Harris's body with over 100 bullets. Today, the entire street is said to be haunted by the massacre's victims. Wandering apparitions, random dog barking, and a ghost in an old policeman's uniform have all been reported. Barley's Taproom reports the most activity, with ghost sightings, random noises, and unexplained electrical activity plaguing the building.
