This antique store in Newport, Kentucky is pretty popular with local ghost hunters. We even spent a few nights there back in 2009 or 2010 (it was called Sin City Antiques back then). Between being almost 100 years old, and having ties to Newport’s gangster past, it’s said to have picked up a few permanent residents over the years.
They claim to have at least four wandering around the store, including one that died at the age of 6, and another in her 80’s. Actually, that number may have gone up by now, like I said, it’s been awhile since we we there. While we didn’t see any spirits antiquing during our visits (damn, we always miss them), several ghost hunters, psychics, and even regular patrons have reported encounters with the departed while here.
Though we didn’t have the pleasure of meeting any of the Monmouth Street Antique Gallery’s spooks, I did think the place was pretty damn creepy at night. Maybe it was the antiques themselves, or just the fact that the basement had that spooky look to it, but yeah, it was kinda creepy. The shop is part of the Newport is Haunted tour, so check that out for more info, or just stop in and do some shopping. They are located at 822 Monmouth Street in Newport.
Can you visit this location?
This is a privately owned business that also allows ghost hunters in. Call or stop by for info
