July 14 and 28, August 11 and 25
As night falls in the Battlefords and you head out to the fort the only light comes from the lantern carried by your tour guide. Do you believe in ghosts? Join us and other curious ghost hunters for a lantern-lit adventure and explore the fort after hours. Hear stories of the ghosts who taunt staff and visitors alike at this historic site.

In the Commanding Officer’s Residence will you dare to climb the stairs to the creaky second floor? Will you be brave enough to go inside the rooms where spirits continue to play? In the Officer’s Quarters will you encounter the long-dead assistant surgeon who is said to haunt the building? Thrill to the stories of strange things that have happened to visitors just like you over the years….
