I have a Facebook group page. And for the longest time had no idea what to do with it.
Started being about the Ghost Walks but then the Fan Page took over. Then it was dedicated to personal ghost stories but the true believers never posted from fear of backlash (I understand).
It’s true what some say, let the public decide. Many dedicated members kept posting history related information. Some skewed to the alternative history of Hamilton, like what’s covered on the Hamilton’s Dark History tour.
And then the realization hit… Hamilton’s rich history is popular! With the perfect storm of dedicated Hamilton-ians and mixed with a growing city from being one of the most up-and-coming in Canada. All our new neighbours moving in and wanting to know more. Lots of history info, but very little dark history.
Hamilton, the city of small communities (which date back to the 1700’s). Hamilton, the rough town with a dark past. Hamilton, the mob town. This is what Hamilton’s Darker History will represent.
If you have some time… take a look at the new Hamilton’s Darker History Facebook Group
