History

In 1950 war veteran Jimmy Burcham opened the Burcham Arms in the working class neighborhood of Gibsonton, mostly so Jimmy and his war buddies would have a place to drink away from their wives. From its beginning, The Burcham Arms has had a well deserved reputation as a rough pub. In the 1960s it was the center of a police investigation of a serial killer known as the Gibsonton Chopper, who would meet prostitutes at the Burch and cut them up with an axe. In 1971 the city closed the Burcham Arms after Tommy Burcham was convicted for dealing heroin out of the bar.

The 1980s tourist boom in Gibsonton saw the reopening of the Burcham Arms as a theme bar playing up it's sordid past. Tourists could come for a pint and then tour Gibsonton for the scenes of the Chopper's murders. In the 1990s the Burch was renovated to appeal to the burgeoning tech industry in Gibsonton, but saw little success, closing in 2001.

A few months prior to the outbreak it opened again, decorated with WWII memorabilia and vintage fixtures in honor of it's original owner.
