Ghost Stories of Ontario
Here is a book to thrill and chill you!
It brings together sixty-nine stories of haunted houses, ghosts, poltergeists, apparitions, and other eerie events and experiences.
What is amazing is that all the stories are true - they actually happened - and they happened in Ontario!
Did Sir John A. Macdonald give advice from the dead?
Did William Lyon Mackenzie King engage in a friendly conversation with a veteran newspaperman at Kingsmere two years after his death?
Is Ottawa’s Laurier House haunted?
What happened in Toronto’s Mackenzie House?
Did an apparition of Walt Whitman appear in Bon Echo Provincial Park?
Does a beautiful lady in white haunt old stone houses in the north Woodstock area?
What was behind the Baldoon Mystery and the Dagg Poltergeist?
Do such things happen? Are they happening today?
In these pages there are ghosts aplenty. They appear in the villages, towns, and cities of Ontario - among them: Goderich, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake, North Bay, Oakville, Oshawa, St. Catharines, and Sarnia!
Perhaps there is a ghost near you…
"It's a book to keep you thinking. All night. With the light on."
