Friday Night Frights Ghost Tours at Old Fort Erie
Travel to the edge of the Niagara River in Fort Erie to discover the hallowed history of this War of 1812 National Historic Site. You’ll explore the grounds with a costumed interpreter, whose haunting tales will echo off the walls of the old stone fort on this intimate guided tour.
Old Fort Erie is the site of Canada’s bloodiest battlefield, so what better place to experience a chilling ghost tour? Ghost tours are limited to 20 people per tour to ensure adequate social distancing.
No Heads, No Hands
As the British began to invade the Fort and opened fire with their artillery, an American soldier witnessed a blood-curdling sight amongst the chaos of the invasion.
In the century since, visitors to the fort have claimed to witness two soldiers walking the grounds at night, one with no head and one with no hands.
Captain Kingsley’s Bed
Bedridden and suffering from a myriad of intense health problems, Captain Kingsley spent his final months suffering from vicious fevers, hallucinations and eventually mercury poisoning which had devastating effects on both his physical and mental health.
Due to his long and horrible death, many people believe that the Captain still haunts this room and the bed specifically. 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.
