Have you ever seen a ghost? A lot of Lincoln County residents have. If you have a ghost story and would like to share your story with others, please join us at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center on Friday, October 28th at 5:30 pm, for a fun open mic evening of ghost storytelling.
In Newport, many patrons and employees of the old Smuggler’s Cove Nightclub (now the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center) report having seen a ghost in the building. Smugglers Cove nightclub was in business under several operators from about 1980 to 1999. Parts of its rambling 30,000 square foot structure date from the 1920s and was once a residence. Its stone foundation is from the original 1880s residence on this site.
We are especially interested in hearing about your ghost encounters at Smugglers Cove or elsewhere in Lincoln County. On the other hand, if you have an entertaining ghost story (preferably true), please join us and share with others.
This moderated event will be held in the Great Room in front of the fireplace. The microphone will be turned up, the lights turned down, and treats will be provided. Admission to this event will be free for Historical Society members, and $5 for non-members. For more information, call the Lincoln County Historical Society at (541) 265-7509, or visit www.oregoncoasthistory.org.
