Long-dead British soldiers, grieving lovers, an undead priest - Niagara-on-the-Lake’s long and colourful history is kept alive by ghosts of its past. Widely considered to be Canada’s most haunted community, the town has preserved much of its built heritage, thus providing perfect "haunts" for age-old spirits.

Through historical investigation and engrossing storytelling, the authors have detailed nearly two dozen ghosts. An ageless tavern is home to the spirit of a British officer slain in its basement, a gentlemanly ghost except when encountering Americans; a woman comes face-to-face with a hero from the past while working at one of the nation’s most cherished historic landmarks; visitors to Queenston Heights are stalked by phantom soldiers.

Historical research is embedded in every tale in an attempt to establish the line between fact and fantasy. But numerous eyewitness accounts will draw the reader into these unusual and often unnerving stories.

Ive read this before and liked it so much that I am reading it a second time and this is the type of stuff I embelish most. Many of Niagara Falls most haunted spots are explored in detail. As Sewinglady mentioned this is a very interesting read and she's right. The one thing that would be even better is getting an opportunity to visit the spots in person. Ive been to Queenston Heights, and at the Laura Secord home. I have yet to visit Angel Inn and Drummond HIll Cemetery.
