Ghost Walks

August 5th & August 19th
As night falls on the prairies the only light comes from the stars and the moon. On a dark night join with other curious ghost hunters to take a lantern-lit adventure and explore the fort after hours. Hear stories of the ghosts who stalk the corridors and haunt the rooms of this historic site which once stood as the capital of the Northwest Territories.

Climb the creaky stairs of the officer’s quarters, will you meet the long-dead surgeon who is said to haunt the upstairs rooms? Peek inside the gaolhouse and thrill to stories of strange things that have happened to visitors just like you over the years...
