Antique Alley is primarily located on Trenton Street in the Cotton Port Historic District of downtown West Monroe, Louisiana, on the banks of the Ouachita River. Cotton Port Historic District has a history dating back to March 1859 when Cotton Port was recognized by the Louisiana Legislature. In November 1883, the name was changed to West Monroe. The area continued to grow with the addition of a railroad bridge across the Ouachita River and the building of the Union Oil Mill which processed cotton seed oil until its closing. The Union Oil Mill is currently being converted into apartments, condos, and retail shopping.
The Antique Alley Merchants Association had its beginning in 1987 when a group of six merchants began pooling money to pay for advertising for their stores. From this beginning, we have grown to over 40 shops. Diverse shopping including antique malls, individual antique stores, other specialty shops, restaurants, and a bed and breakfast.
Shop hours vary; however, most shops are open Tuesday through Saturday 10 am to 5 pm. Check store pages for detailed information.
