Walking into Melvin's Public House, you might feel as though you've stepped back in time. The boom-town style wood exterior is reminiscent of when Heber's primary form of transport was a horse and buggy. This saloon turned sports bar has most of the woodwork from the early 20th century, including the original back bar.
