Haunting Histories - Select evening in July & August 2021
Ghosts, graveyards, and gruesome tales. The Brockville Museum invites you to explore a darker side of Brockville’s history with our Haunting Histories guided walk. From ghosts in the attic to abandoned graves to the last hanging in Brockville, Haunting Histories is a re-imagining of the Ghost Walks previously offered by Brockville Tourism, now with new stories that not only include ghosts but also a little dark local history alongside tales of the supernatural, the mysterious, and the almost forgotten. New stories added for 2021.
