In addition to being one of the prettiest towns in Canada, Niagara-on-the-Lake is commonly referred to as the most haunted, says Amanda Gamble of the Friends of Fort George.
The most prevalent tales of paranormal activity surround Fort George National Historic Site, says Gamble, the executive director of the Friends.
“There have been hundreds of reports of paranormal sightings at Fort George, ranging from the benevolent spirit of a little girl named Sarah Ann to a more ominous presence simply known as The Watcher.”
This October, when some believe “supernatural forces are most powerful, and the barrier between this world and the next is at its weakest,” Fort George will be holding its special Holloween Tours.
The two-hour walking tour includes stories too frightening to be told on the summer tours, and opens a building, the Officers’ Quarters, usually off limits to the Ghost Tour.
Halloween tour dates are Oct. 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 30, and 31.
Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance. Call the Friends of Fort George Gift Shop at 905-468-6621 to order.

Proceeds from the Fort George Ghost tours help to support student summer employment opportunities at Fort George and Brock’s Monument.
