The Dark Side of Port Colborne!
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!
- Oakwood Cemetery where family and fortunes run afoul, a loyal companion keeps guard and rumours of a curse few have dared to challenge. Tales of a personal encounter with a particular spirit that resides in The Roselawn.
- Legends and ghostly encounters on the waters of Lake Erie & The Welland Canal
- …and so much more!
Tours run from 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm (7:00 pm – 8:30 pm for Oct./Nov. dates); please arrive a few minutes early so everyone joins the walk together.

We are by the water while the sun goes down, so consider the weather (a light jacket or sweater may be in order).
