Find your way around by lantern light and enter Ottawa’s famous haunted jail, which now functions as a hostel. See some of the intact jail areas, which once housed some of the city's most infamous criminals, before they were hanged on the on-site gallows. Some say that their souls still haunt the site. Visit the jail's eeriest spots as your guide shares spooky stories of levitating coins and faceless ghosts. Learn about the gruesome assassination of Thomas D'Arcy McGee and tour the cellblocks where inmates were once imprisoned. Lastly, retrace the final footsteps of the condemned as you walk from Death Row to the last working gallows in Canada.
