Lemp Brewery Bottle Works
The Lemp Bottling Plant was one of the last buildings raised in the brewery complex. Built in 1907, it served as the “Revenue Building,” where every drop of Lemp beer passed through to be taxed.
After the brewery was purchased by the International Shoe Company in 1922, the building was used for printing and labeling the thousands of shoe boxes that passed through its doors each year.
For years the damp and gloomy basement of this massive structure was sealed off and was all but forgotten- trapping within its walls, whatever lonely spirit or spirits lurk in the tunnels. Now, after a year of negotiation, we've gained access to this virtually untouched time capsule!
If wandering around the eerie underground space isn't enough to send chills down your spine, you can also explore the top floor of the old Bottling Plant! This 30,000 sq ft open space is surrounded by brick and 47 original arched windows.
At night, this dimly lit space is home to a shadow figure that's been observed by some of our own team members. If you’re quite and still, you may also catch this curios spirit peaking at you from around the columns!
It is the goal of the STLPRS to turn this unique venue into a type of "paranormal laboratory." The type of research we do will be an ongoing experiment, and members of the paranormal community can come to learn about and experience these activities with us! This is one reason why we will be limiting these events to only thirteen people. We want to ensure the best atmosphere for welcoming paranormal activity. Money raised from our events will help preserve this piece of St. Louis History, and help ensure continued access to this historic complex.
