Ghosts of Niagara-on-the-Lake


A new, expanded edition detailing Niagara-on-the-Lake’s ghostly inhabitants.

Long-dead British soldiers, grieving lovers, lingering spirits — Niagara-on-the-Lake’s long and colourful history is kept alive by ghosts of its past. Some have called it Canada’s most haunted town, and with so much of its built heritage preserved, the community provides the perfect haunts for age-old spirits.

Through historical investigation, numerous eyewitness accounts, and engrossing storytelling, the authors have detailed over two dozen ghosts. A timeless tavern is home to the spirit of a British officer slain in its basement, a polite ghost except when he encounters Americans; a woman comes face-to-face with a hero from the past while working at one of the nation’s most cherished historic landmarks; in Queenston Heights, visitors are stalked by phantom soldiers.

Every tale paints a vivid portrait of the past, drawing the reader into these atmospheric, uncanny, and eerie stories.


Rich not only in the history of the Niagara region itself, but also in the tales of the paranormal and folklore that permeates the very air, Ghosts of Niagara-on-the-Lake makes ghost-hunting fun.
