Meet your guide and storyteller for the evening outside the tour ticket wicket on Sparks Street. The historical costume they wear and ghostly lantern they carry help set the tone for the chilling tales to come.
Follow the alley down to the hostel that was once the Old Carleton County Jail, a prison that housed some of Ottawa’s most notorious criminals before they were hanged on the on-site gallows. Some say the unhappy souls of the wrongly executed still haunt the place! Before the tour ends at the jail, decide for yourself if the tales of floating coins, unexplained chills, and faceless ghosts could possibly be true.
