Exiting the Station east onto South Railroad Avenue, you see the Grant City Tavern.  It is dedicated to John Bergin, a 39-year-old Fire Fighter who was lost on September 11, 2001.  Bergin fulfilled a life-long dream when he purchased the bar that June and spent the summer renovating it.  See the full story at:    http://www.silive.com/september11/lr/index.ssf?/september11/lr/bergin.html
