Join us as we investigate a Kingston, Ontario landmark – Murney Tower! Prior to the Tower, a wood Fort from the war of 1812 stood on the site. After the war, the barracks were used as a hospital until the Tower was built. The land was also heavily used as a landing site for indigenous peoples in the 18th century. The activity could possibly be connected to any or all of these time periods. This 2-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 the tower – in the dark – to see what you can discover. With a max of 8 people per group, tickets are extremely limited. Transportation not provided. No restrooms on-site – be sure to plan accordingly!

Back for 2022! The Historic SDG Jail (aka the Cornwall Jail) in Cornwall, Ontario, is a site we have been asked about for years and we are thrilled to be able to offer three weekends of investigations there this fall with Phantoms of Yore. Constructed in 1833 and active until 2002, the jail served as both a minimum and maximum security facility over that time. Several executions were carried out on-site, in addition to the suicides and murders. Due to the jail’s dark history and frequent ghost stories, it has attracted the interest of ghost hunters from across North America. This 3.5-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 the jail – in the dark – to see what you can discover. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to investigate one of the most sought-after haunted sites in Ontario. With a max of 8 people per group, tickets are extremely limited. Transportation not provided.
