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.

Through historical investigation and eyewitness accounts, Andrew Hind and Maria Da Silva share over two dozen ghostly tales: a murdered British officer haunts the Olde Angel Inn, a ghostly widow retaliates against couples, a condemned ghost at the old courthouse pleads his innocence, and ghostly guests at the Prince of Wales Hotel have no desire to check out. Some have called Niagara on-the-Lake Canada’s most haunted town, and with so much of its built heritage preserved, the community clearly makes the perfect haunt for age-old spirits.


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.
