Ever feel like you’re being watched? Can you hear the faint noise of a creepy piano playing in the distance? Have you heard children laughing through the walls? Well, then, maybe you’ve stumbled into one of Winnipeg’s haunted places.
And maybe that’s just what They wanted.
The Demon Hotel
Located at 44 Hargrave Street, this building was built in the summer of 1910. Though there were no incidents that could really spark a paranormal haunting, it’s believed that unsettled spirits moved here from the Dalnavert Museum after it was first opened. An anonymous photographer dared to enter the building and reported hearing footsteps and other suspicious noises.
Fort Gary Hotel
The Fort Gary Hotel is a well-known haunted location. Some of these frightening ghost sightings are of a woman in a white robe, walking up and down the halls or crying in the corner of a room. The story behind this crying woman is that she was once a hotel guest who, upon hearing of her husbands death, took her own life by hanging herself inside the closet.
I don’t think it mentions this on the Travelosity site.
The Walker Theatre
This lovely theatre is said to be home to the spirits of Laurence Irving and Mable Hackney, who died on on the sinking ship, Empress of Ireland. Before they set sail to their fate, they vowed to return to the Walker Theatre. Footsteps and doors apparently move on their own. Sometimes, people hear clapping or applause in the empty theatre.
Talk about stage fright!
The Misericordia Hospital
Hospitals can already be really creepy. Adding a paranormal factor into the mix makes things even more…interesting. Ghosts of patients past roam the halls creating noisy disturbances. Many people say they can feel themselves being watched when they’re visiting the Misericordia Hospital.
