Our archive consists of articles showing off ghost stories in this very haunted city of Hamilton.  But I’m obsessed.  Strange and dark history mix amazingly into ghostly tales.

The Hamilton’s Dark History tour is made up of these stories.  Vagabonds outside of the paranormal but oh so interesting.

To get a feel for Hamilton’s darkness, read these…

Albion Falls : A Dark Town of Hamilton – The stories of what could have been Canada’s most dark town. Wiped away by progress, read how this site became a mob dumping ground, where the Torso case began and it’s tragic ghost.
Dundas District School : A Death Pact – You don’t expect school officials to act in such a manner. Adoring the building so much, they said, “Whoever dies first must return!”. Russell agreed, and died first.
Custom House : Hamilton’s Most Haunted – Darkness surrounds this structure, as proven by our previous tours and hunts. Many dark occurrences, and a ghost generations old.
Whitehern Mansion : Hamilton’s Secret Haunt – A secret and hidden historical mansion, and a ghost known but never talked about. Read about his tragic life and death…


I'm a paranormal enthusiast since founding Haunted Hamilton back in 1999. Started with Hamilton's Bellevue Mansion (2000) and been hooked ever since. Left HH in 2012 to focus on my passion, the Ghost Walks. I love telling the stories of witnesses, and from the past, with the goal of proving ghosts are real.
