Nova Scotia Haunted Sites
Bedford Basin – Halifax Harbour Over the years, people standing along its shore on foggy evenings have reported hearing the sound of a small boat being rowed toward the shore. The sound dies away, and no boat is ever seen. The story goes that sometime in the last century a dory full of fishermen overturned in the fog, and drowned. Their restless spirits are said to spend eternity seeking a shoreline they will never find.
The Brewery Market – Salter Street, Halifax Home to Alexander Keith’s brewpub, employees say that the ghost of Alexander Keith has been seen throughout the building, making sure that all is well with his brewery. His pleasant ghost is not the only one said to haunt this old building – disembodied running footsteps are heard in the hallways at night.
Cathedral Church of All Saints – Tower Road, Halifax This beautiful cathedral is said to be haunted by the ghost of one of its past deans. His spectre has been seen throughout the church, but most of the ghostly activity is centered on the altar, where he has been seen standing on many occasions.
