The Dark Side of Port Colborne!

Some claim that Niagara on the Lake is Canada’s MOST HAUNTED TOWN, we beg to differ…

Roselawn (1860)

Join your spirited hosts Missus Mooney and Michael Furey as they take you on an eerie stroll back in time. Like any good ghost story, these Haunted History Tours are filled with intriguing and sometimes frightening (but true) stories that may keep you up at night – you’ll never look at history the same again!

  • Tales of personal encounters with a particular spirit that resides in The Roselawn, once home to several of the city’s most prestigious families.
  • Oakwood Cemetery where family and fortunes run afoul, a loyal companion keeps guard and rumours of a curse few have dared to challenge.
  • Ghostly lights along the Canal
  • Legends and ghostly encounters on the waters of Lake Erie

…and so much more!


Our Haunted History Walking Tours run from 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm (7:00 pm – 8:30 pm for Oct./Nov. dates)
