Hear about Ottawa’s haunted past during a walking tour

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2014

Who doesn’t like a good ghost story? Next weekend you can take a walking tour of downtown Ottawa and hear all kinds of ghastly tales.

“Ghosts of Ottawa Past” is being put on by members of the Reddick Mansion Association. The guided tour next Saturday night starts at the mansion and then goes to various haunted spots covering a half-mile. You’ll hear about the last public hanging in Ottawa and visit a haunted funeral parlor.

There will be two different tours, one leaving from the mansion at 7 the other at 9. It’s ten dollars a person. Because of the subject matter being talked about, you should be at least 13 to go on the tour.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
