Akron Gold and Silver

Some say not all the guests are going home at closing time at Akron Gold and Silver, a fine antiques and estate collectable shop in downtown Akron Iowa. A neighboring business owner heard a male voice after hours calling their dog by it’s name “Sandy” after hours when the building was all locked up. Sandy, the building complex’s guard dog, heard it too and went to find out who was calling her only to find no one there. Did the voice come in with the grandfather clock that arrived that weekend as some suggest or the framed charcoal drawing of a stately gentleman a few weeks before? Others report bangs and crashing noises in a storage room area only to find nothing disturbed or anyone there. All very entertaining for those that visit this location.
