The Hermitage Ruins
The ruins of an old mansion exist in the historic town of Ancaster (now part of Hamilton).  For generations countless thrill-seekers have visited in search of ghosts.  Home to the paranormal but also dark ritual.  Maybe that’s why the land is cursed!
Cursed Nature
You don’t need to be psychic to feel it. When walking up the hill towards the ruins. A heaviness weighs down on you. Adults can push these dreadful feelings aside, say it doesn’t exist. Animals are different, possessing a sixth sense we’ve lost with evolution. On conservation land, but animals stay away from the path and ruins.
The Legend of Lover’s Lane
Maybe it begins with a legend.  Known in this region simply as “Lover’s Lane”. So famous, there’s a street named after it…

Groups capped at 14-16 people with social distancing and masks are required during the tour.
