Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It was one of Canada’s strongholds during the War of 1812. Thousands of British and Canadian troops who spent their entire lives here suffered enduring hardship, sudden death and loneliness. Many of their specters are seen by visitors wandering the grounds to this day. A tour guide once approached a young boy who was talking into thin air. The boy identified his imaginary friend as a soldier wearing yellow facings (the same color as soldiers once stationed here). There have been dozens of reports about a woman, in period clothing combing her hair, reflected in one of the mirrors in the Officer’s Quarters. Oddly, people are now reporting the same woman sitting in the room as if she somehow escaped from the mirror and is now free to roam this building. Mysterious reports have also emerged from the tunnel that leads to a powder magazine located outside its walls. Two tour guides once found themselves locked in the bunkhouse after they had spotted strange shadows moving around the ground floor bunkroom.
