The Pacific Maritime Heritage Center wants to hear about your ghost encounters at Smugglers Cove or elsewhere in Lincoln County.
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 the rambling 30,000 square foot structure date from the 1920s. The stone foundation is from the original 1880s residence on the site.
If you have an entertaining ghost story (preferably true), please join with others at the center for a creepy good time on Friday, Oct. 28, 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.
