Monticello, AR is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, The Allen House. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Allen House in Monticello was built in 1900 by a prosperous Delta planter named Joe Lee Allen. The Allen family lived in the house until the 1950s, when it was converted into apartments, mostly for students attending the nearby University of Arkansas.
The house started to gain a reputation for being haunted in the 1940s when LaDell Allen, one of Joe's daughters, committed suicide in the house by drinking cyanide. It is reportedly haunted by Joe, as well.
Several tenants claimed to have encountered ghosts in the building. A doctor captured the reflection of a spirit in a mirror in his room and a young couple who said they trapped in a spirit in a closet.
Tenants also claim to have heard strange moaning sounds and the sounds of heavy footsteps on the upper floor, which was empty at the time.
In 1985, a gift shop was opened on the main floor of the house and shortly after opening, the owner noticed things knocked over and missing and some believed that the ghost of LaDell Allen was furious at the idea of her former home being used as a gift shop.
The Allen House is now open for historical guided tours by appointment and is a popular spot for weddings. The historic property opens its doors the last two days of October for special Halloween tours.
