Toronto is filled with supposedly haunted places. Behind the facade of some of our city’s most beautiful old buildings lies a more gruesome past that’s waiting for you to discover. Halloween is the perfect time for you to explore spooky sites, which are located all over for your ghost hunting convenience, of course.

Here are some of the creepiest haunted places in Toronto.

Lower Bay Station
This abandoned subway station appears in lots of movies and TV shows. It’s also apparently haunted by a mysterious lady in red. Next time the subway diverts through the abandoned station make sure to watch for her apparition.

Guild Inn grounds
The former summer home of Colonel Harold Bickford might be getting redeveloped right now, but in the past, it’s had a number of uses including as a hotel, military hospital and missionary college. The creepy architectural cemetery is made even more so by the prospect of ghosts on the grounds.

IS ‘GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN’ FAKE? CRITICS CLAIM NICK GROFF’S SHOW IS SCRIPTED, WITNESSES ARE ACTORS

ghosts

A still captured from the end of the show seems to prove the show is more a Ghost tale more than anything else.  Factually inaccurate, but it is TV, made to entertain

As the second season of Ghosts of Shepherdstown nears its premiere date, viewers continue to wonder if Nick Groff’s reality TV series is real or fake. Fans of the former Ghost Adventures paranormal investigator have been asking this question since Season 1 of Ghosts of Shepherdstown aired on Destination America in June of 2016. Critics of Ghosts of Shepherdstown claim the show is scripted and that the witnesses are actors.

Some viewers say that Ghosts of Shepherdstown is “okay” to watch as a show, but it should be watched with some skepticism. Other viewers say they watch Ghosts of Shepherdstown to learn the history of the town, and it’s up to each viewer to decide how they feel about the show. According to Journal News, there’s not a shortage of real-life ghost stories from residents in Shepherdstown and in surrounding towns. But the director of the Visitors Center in Shepherdstown, Marianne Davis, confirmed in an interview that parts of Ghosts of Shepherdstown are staged (locations were changed) and fake (ghost stories were changed) “to make good television.”

Quoting Journal News, “Davis said some of the locations or ghost stories were changed by the show’s producers ‘to make good television.’”

Destination America Investigates “Haunted Towns” in All-New Series Premiering August 15 at 10/9c

The TV networks are still trying out new Paranormal series, even after one of the long running pioneer shows, ‘ The Ghost Hunters’ was canceled by Syfy.  The boom years are long gone now except for a few survivors like GAC.  Destination America also has had some success with ” Paranormal Lockdown” and ” Paranormal Survivor” Both highly dramatic shows that seem to sell excitement rather than a true documentary

DESTINATION AMERICA INVESTIGATES THE COUNTRY’S MOST HAUNTED TOWNS IN ALL-NEW SERIES PREMIERING AUGUST 15

(Silver Spring, Md.) – The Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) ghost hunting team is getting their spooky on in an all-new series as they travel across the country investigating America’s most haunted towns. From infamous hotbeds like Gettysburg and Salem to small towns with turbulent pasts that fueled generations of ghost stories, HAUNTED TOWNS explores places that played key roles in the darker chapters of American history, where battle, disaster, and injustice have condemned unsettled spirits to every street corner. Follow TWC – consisting of Chris, Doogie, Porter, and Brannon – as they interview witnesses, investigate hotspots using the latest ghost-hunting technology, and follow new leads until they can pinpoint who is haunting the town and why. But the team isn’t just about collecting evidence. Their m.o. is to find truth – if any – in the legends that have shaped each town’s paranormal notoriety. The eight-episode first season of HAUNTED TOWNS premieres Tuesday, August 15 at 10/9c on Destination America.

“HAUNTED TOWNS is about so much more than ghost stories. It’s about places of deep historical significance, where stories of hauntings are passed down over generations. Is it simply folklore, or is it true? We want to find out what is really going on in these towns,” said Jane Latman, general manager of Destination America. “With extensive experience investigating both legendary asylums and – in their pre-TV days – private homes, no team is more prepared for the challenge of confirming the ghostly lore of an entire town than our beloved Tennessee Wraith Chasers.”

In the series premiere on Tuesday, August 15 at 10/9c, TWC heads to Gettysburg, Pa., where more than 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the Civil War’s most epic battle. The town is a hot spot for paranormal activity and the perfect testing ground for an experiment using trigger objects that may have had personal meaning to the spirits and could activate paranormal activity. While attempting to contact ghosts from both sides of the Civil War conflict, the boys investigate a militaria shop filled with war memorabilia as well as a local farm that served as a temporary field hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers. During their attempt to connect with the restless souls of dead soldiers, TWC encounters evidence that something darker may be lurking in the legendary haunted town.

Other episodes this season investigate:

· Salem, Mass., one of the most legendary haunted towns in America

· Savannah, Ga., where hauntings plague the businesses surrounding the former site of the city’s gallows

· Vicksburg, Miss., the site of major civil unrest during Reconstruction

· Bisbee, Ariz., the old mining town plagued by union strife

· Fall River, Mass., home of Lizzie Borden

· McDonough, Ga., where the Camp Creek train crash of 1900 left dozens of passengers dead

· Cape May, N.J., the epicenter of the Victorian Era’s Spiritualism movement

Fans are invited to watch the premiere of HAUNTED TOWNS online a week in advance of its television premiere, which will be available unlocked beginning on August 7 on DestinationAmerica.com. Download Destination America’s TV Everywhere app on Android and IOS to see weekly sneak peeks of upcoming episodes and browse the network’s entire library of paranormal content.

About the Tennessee Wraith Chasers

The Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) are a serious team of paranormal investigators who don’t take themselves too seriously. Each investigation is packed full of southern charm and wit, but when it comes down to business they don’t mess around. TWC’s motto is respect, detect, collect, meaning they rely on a unique combination of the scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate investigations. Growing up in an historic, and some say haunted, area of Tennessee has given them with an authentic desire to make sense of the mysterious things they’ve experienced through paranormal research. They take great pride in establishing trusted relationships with witnesses and call on the strengths of each team member to leave no stone unturned. The Wraith Chasers made their television debut as the stars of Destination America’s fan-favorite series GHOST ASYLUM, in which they investigated America’s most frightening asylums, sanitariums, penitentiaries and haunted hotspots.
