Spookiness Scale

The Lost Villages Museum in Long Sault, Ontario, has a well-earned reputation as one of the most haunted places in Ontario. The site commemorates “lost” communities in Eastern Ontario which were permanently submerged by the creation of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Many of the 6,500 people displaced by the project saw their homes and businesses destroyed. We will have the opportunity to explore original buildings that have been relocated to the site. This 4-hour special event will begin with a full briefing on the haunted history of the site, the equipment to be used, and the best practices to follow when collecting and analyzing evidence. Then you will have the opportunity to venture inside and investigate four different heritage buildings. Will you hear an echo from the past? With a max of 6 people per group, tickets are extremely limited. Transportation not provided.

Who are Phantoms of Yore?

Phantoms of Yore are the Haunted Walk’s official paranormal investigations partners. POY was founded in March 2018 by Elliot Luijkenaar (left) and Eric Oickle (right). The pair wanted to assist in the preservation of unique historical sites by facilitating public Paranormal Investigations. Over the past three years they have hosted dozens of popular events and have helped raise thousands of dollars for restorative work, renovations and other funding needs. Some of the sites include: L’Original Jail, Murney Tower, Ninette Sanatorium, Cornwall Jail, Mill of Kintail and the HI Ottawa Jail Hostel.

What happens at public investigations?

Simply put, these events allows guests to be paranormal investigators for the evening. These suspenseful, entertaining and informative experiences share the history, folklore, paranormal accounts about the site, and the theories and hypothesis behind paranormal investigations. Investigators film their own experiences and the footage is uploaded so it can be reviewed for possible paranormal captures. Live feeds are also included in most events, allowing for patrons to have instant access to the footage. Many paranormal enthusiasts and experienced investigators watch the live feed to help detect anomalies.
