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.

Daniel of the Ghost Walks

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.
