Maplewood History: White Castle and Saratoga Lanes

By Bill Jones: White Castle was our only stop on the way to Saratoga Lanes.  The White Castle was located in the 7400 block of Manchester–about 40 feet west of Sutton.  Johnny Ryan’s Tavern was on the southwest corner of Sutton and Manchester and did NOT serve food.  The City of Maplewood wouldn’t license them to serve food.
