I like reading about the spooky and unknown and have always wanted to visit haunted places in Canada. Do I even need to describe just how beautiful and massive Canada is! It has loads of green space, structures, historical sites and interesting stories. There are many wonderful things to see and do especially if you are into history, the unexplained, or the paranormal. Some of the most beautiful places on earth are also the most haunted. I love learning about the history of an area and the legends that live on through its people. On my next out of state trip I will travel north and visit Canada. Until then, I share with you a little information about seven haunted places in Canada that will make you squirm…or, at least pique your interest. ;)
1. Fortress of Louisbourg, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
One of the largest haunted places in Canada is the Fortress of Louisbourg. Located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia this massive structure was built in in the early eighteenth century. The fort housed nearly one thousand people by 1730 but experienced a smallpox epidemic shortly thereafter. While many people survived, a number of citizens succumbed to the disease. The fort was later besieged in 1745 and again in 1758. Visitors to this location have reported seeing smallpox and battle victims roaming the grounds and tunnels.
