When Matt Horey died in 1926, he was remembered in The News as “well-known in Williamsville and surrounding areas, having had a place of business at the corner of Main and Cayuga Streets.” The business, depending on which description you believe, was either a hall, a hotel, a saloon or a tavern.

Aside from a tavern, Horey’s was also a regular polling place around the turn of the 20th century.
The building was torn down in 1923 to make way for a bank building, which was a Liberty Bank branch for many years.
It’s now the home of a Bank of America branch.
