Ghosts of Kingston
From the Files of the Haunted Walk
About the Book
Ghosts, graveyards, hangings and haunts.
Is Kingston one of the most haunted cities in Canada?
Since 1995, tour guides from Haunted Walks Inc. have been entertaining and educating the public with Kingston's darker history and many ghost stories. Our guides are easily recognized by their dark cloaks and lanterns as they lead their groups through the quiet streets and alleys of the historic Limestone City.
In this collection of supernatural tales from our favourite haunted buildings and places, we share the very best of over a decade's worth of research and investigation. Read about the phantom of Kingston Penitentiary, who swore he would come back from the grave to have his vengeance; the ghost of the gentleman soldier, hanged on the hill at Fort Henry, or the heartbreaking tragedy at Deadman's Bay that reunited the spirits of a young couple after their deaths. These and many other chilling tales are to be found inside.
