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…

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.
