Kentucky Historical Society

The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS), originally established in 1836 as a private organisation, is an agency of the Kentucky state government. The KHS history campus includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the State Arsenal.

According to Norman and Scott, an "elegant mahogany veneer chest" which is kept at the facility, is known as the "Conjure Chest", and was said to have a curse placed upon it.

It is alleged that no fewer than sixteen untimely deaths have been attributed to this piece of furniture. Is this why it is said to be kept in the museum vaults, away from members of the public?

For a full account of the strange deaths associated with the chest, we recommend you read Haunted America below.
