Chilling tales of a bloody battlefield

Chilling tales of a bloody battlefield

One of the most famous ghost stories in the long history of Old Fort Erie is the historically verified “No Heads, No Hands.” When the British began to invade the Fort and opened fire with their artillery, two American soldiers were injured in a blood-curdling sight amongst the chaos of the invasion.

In the century since, many have claimed to witness the two soldiers walking the grounds of the battlefield at night–one with no head and one with no hands.

Captain Kingsley’s haunted bed

Bedridden and suffering from a myriad of health problems, Captain Kingsley of the King’s 8th Regiment of Foot spent his final months in his bedroom inside the Officers’ quarters. He suffered from vicious fevers, hallucinations and mercury poisoning which had devastating effects on his physical and mental health.

After his long and horrible illness and subsequent death, many people believe that the Captain still haunts the Officers’ quarters, specifically the bed where he died. Museum staff and visitors have entered the room to find the sheets strewn about the bed, while some have reported hearing footsteps and seeing windows and doors move without being touched. You’ll see the haunted Officers’ quarters, and the Capitan’s original bed, on your All Hallows’ Eve tour.
