Ruthven of Cayuga

Our rare tour inside a haunted mansion and featuring two graveyards at night.

First step inside the Thompson mansion.  Stories of a playful little resident ghost and feelings of dread from old tradition.  Once the home of a famous Canadian actor, and now his ghost.

Then step out to where a town once stood for true darkness.  Walk right into the worker and family cemeteries.  Featuring our fear of death, the founder’s revenge and possession at the family plot.

The scariest (aka best) way to experience this unique place!

Indiana, Ontario (now Ruthven) is a ghost town unlike those with wooden structures along dusty roads, men with cowboy hats walking about on plank sidewalks. Canada’s ghost town is different.

Little Bessie – –

During a historical tour a young girl wasn’t listening.  They all listened to the guide, parents and daughter, as they went through the mansion.  Amazing stories of how the Thompson’s lived and what they experienced.  Then arriving at the grand staircase, the tour guide noticed the little girl focusing on the stairs.

She ignored it, continued on with the stories and forgot…


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.
