Anything and everything anytime

Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba in Brandon. Paranormal activities in this art museum are mysterious footsteps being heard by evening janitors when this building is empty and an eerie feeling of being watched by specters.

Barber House in Winnipeg. An American pioneer journalist and businessman whose name was Edmund Lorenzo Barber built this house in 1862. There is a legend about a father murdering his entire family before committing suicide. Paranormal activities include lights inside although there is no electricity going to this house, mysterious mists, light anomalies, disembodied voices and apparitional noises from within this house.

Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg. The paranormal activities are spectral applauding from empty seats, two hundred pound steel doors moving by themselves, disembodied voices and whispers, doors creak open and close including the kicked out of a wedge of wood that was used to block a door open, dogs barking at invisible material and light anomalies.

Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. The most notorious level of this hotel is the second floor which locates Room 202. Guests to the room have reported waking up to find the dark silhouette of a figure in a robe or cloak standing at the end of the bed, which vanished before their eyes. There are also stories of maids cleaning the room reporting blood seeping from the walls, as this was the location of the rumored suicide of a woman named Kate baecuse she learned that her newly wed husband lost his life in an automobile accident. Though something of a focal point for the reports of paranormal activity on the floor, the entire second floor has something of a ghostly reputation. Other reports have a woman in a ball gown appearing at the foot of a bed or wandering the hotel’s hallways. In 1989, an employee reported seeing an apparitional figure named Theodore sitting at a table in the dining room, busily consuming away at a ghostly meal and apparently unaware of the employee’s presence. This man visited many times because he was in love with the lounge singer. He was shot in the back of the head by his brother because they both loved the same woman. Employees also report strange moaning noises that seem to echo from nowhere and a phantom light is said to be sighted floating down the halls throughout the hotel. For the most part, the claims of haunted activity throughout the hotel seem to indicate a friendly presence of some bygone customer enjoying their stay in the afterlife.

Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. Apparitional former staff and patients wander this now-defunct general hospital. Sounds include spooky footsteps both in the halls and in the rooms. These footsteps cease immediately once someone living enters any location. There have been mysterious phone calls from the phone in the old elevator, but nobody is there when the call is answered and phone has been completely undisturbed and covered in dust. Other paranormal activities are unexplained bangs, crashes and other loud noises, electronic disturbances, light anomalies and the feeling of being watched by specters.

La Barriere Park in Ritchot. Spooky voices are heard in the woods by visitors, most commonly two little girls speaking. There are also sounds of something coming through the woods towards any patron when something is not there. These sounds are common as they come from all directions at once. Other paranormal reports include feelings of being watched by specters, unwanted and of extreme unease.

Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum in Winnipeg. Apparitional sounds of monks chanting, children running and playing and a full choir of women singing. Taps turn on and off on their own, doors open and close by themselves as well as some reports of them resisting being opened. Other paranormal activities are light anomalies, a feeling of being watched, and lights flickering.

Mallard Lodge in Delta Marsh. It is allegedly haunted by a construction worker who fell into the foundation while it was being built. Apparitional footsteps have been heard and he has been seen in the windows of the station in winter while the facility is closed. Lights also turn off and on on their own here. This location is also haunted by a former groundskeeper whose specter has been seen in the building and wandering the grounds and is said to ring a bell when no one is close to it.

Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg. This site is reputedly haunted by many specters.

There have been many reports by security guards at the Legislature of a spectre dressed in a long white gown running through the building.



St. Norbert Monastery in St. Norbert. This former 19th Century Trappist monastery is now an arts and cultural centre. Vandals set the vacant chapel and monastery on fire reducing its historic buildings to shells in 1983. Visitors have reported to the media about a feeling if being watched by apparitional figures while on the grounds and well as hearing disembodied voices echoing in the building.

MTS Centre in Downtown Winnipeg. This building is the former location of Eaton’s department store. The paranormal activities are an apparitional woman dressed in black, spooky footsteps, disembodied voices and whispers (including hearing your name called), light anomalies and objects being moved by themselves.

Portage Place in Downtown Winnpeg. There are paranormal reports about items falling off shelves by themselves as well as objects moving around by themselves. There are also many paranormal reports about a spectral little girl in the backside of a store that was once “San Francisco”. That store’s current name is unknown.

St. Andrews on the Red in Selkirk. This church was built between 1845and 1849. St. Andrews was consecrated by a Church of England bishop named David Anderson on December 15, 1849. William Cockran, an English-born Scottish venerable, designed its vicinity. This church’s stonemason was a Scottish architect named Duncan McRae. Specters of a man in black and woman in white drift through the cemetery at night. A ghostly car coming out of nowhere has also been described by witnesses as well as the sighting of two red eyes staring out through the dark.

Vaughan Street Jail in Winnipeg. Hangings took place at this hellish old building. The ghosts of the executed murderers are reported to be seen from time to time floating around the now abandoned building.

And not to forget one of the most spectre infested buildings in Winnipeg: The Demon Hotel!


Located on Hargrave St between Broadway and Assiniboine Ave this building is scary with a capital S.  Journalists and ghost hunters have tried to confront the demonic forces in the building, but without avail.  These brave souls come out of the building with a definite discernible increase in grey hairs on their heads. Renowned Brandon demonologist Abraham Lipschitz went into the building with a bit of hair on the back of his head, he came out balder than a hairless African mole rat. Lipschitz reportedly has been a prisoner to the bottle ever since his audacious investigation of the building.
