I will avoid anything scary at all costs. Movies, haunted houses, rides…if it’s scary…I’m out. If you are one of the people that LOVE a good scary movie or haunted house, we’ve got something for you this Halloween. Here are the 10 most haunted places in and around YEG
The Fort Sask museum is apparently haunted by the only woman ever hung in Alberta, Florence Lassandro.
McKay Avenue School is apparently haunted by a ghost named Peter. We spoke with Holly, who works there, who told us they’ve had custodians quit because Peter wouldn’t leave them alone. Opening and closing windows, moving ladders, even following one home!
Walterdale Playhouse are reportedly haunted by horses and a firefighter.
Pembina Hall at the UofA is apparently haunted by a few spirits, a soldier, his fiance and a nurse.
At the Charles Camsell Hospital you will apparently see flickering lights and hear deathly screams at night…but the building has been vacant for almost 20 years
La Boheme Restaurant Bed & Breakfast is apparently haunted by the murdered wife of a former owner of the building. Here’s where it gets spooky…employees say you can hear someone being dragged down the stairway at times…
If you stay at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald…don’t stay on the 8th or 6th floor! Guests have reported sounds of horses running in the hallways on the 8th floor and employees have received calls from a 6th floor room…that had nobody in it.
There’s a ghost wearing all white that haunts The Princess Theatre….apparently a bride from the 1920s who hung herself there. She’s been seen in the projection room, the lobby and up and down the grand staircase.
There’s an old guard and prisoner apparently roaming the halls of the Strathcona Museum and Archives. It’s been said they turn on electronics during the night, move artifacts and occasionally you can smell pipe tobacco and licorice.
Edmonton General Hospital has some creepy stories. Even though it’s been closed and unused for years, apparently you can still hear cries of children and a mother crying for her dead child roams the halls.
