Bytown Paranormal will be returning this month to investigate the Symmes Museum in Aylmer Quebec.
It was in 1831 that Charles Symmes, founder of Aylmer (then the region’s administrative centre) and nephew of Philemon Wright, built this hotel to accommodate travellers coming by steamboat from Montreal. They were required to land in Wrightstown (Hull) to avoid the Chaudiere Falls. The passengers then travelled by stagecoach along the historic Aylmer Road to Symmes Inn before embarking on a steamboat to continue upriver.
Situated on the banks of Lac Deschênes and the Ottawa River, Symmes Inn is the centerpiece of Aylmer’s heritage, cultural and tourist district, which is the most significant and best preserved area of Gatineau’s historic buildings.
A symbol of pride for the people of the region, Symmes Inn was classified as an historic monument in 1975 and designated as a national historic site of Canada in 1976. After having served many a purpose throughout the years, the building was restored in 1978. In 2002, the City of Gatineau proclaimed the building a “heritage gem” par excellence. Since 2003, the inn has housed the Symmes Inn Museum. *Thanks to Joe Houston

330 Kent St
HighJinx is a store at 290 Kent Street in Ottawa and we resell mostly donated antiques, oddities, retro items and housewares using our net profits to fund an initiative that assists the vulnerable in our community. This socially conscious business is a unique undertaking and is totally private, meaning that we do not use any Government funding. There is a Furniture Bank upstairs and we provide household items and furniture to those in need at no cost. We provide free meals once a week, stock a community pantry, case manage clients, house the homeless, advocate for the vulnerable, provide life skills programming, encourage positive community integration and a place for people to meet.
After years in the Social Services field, we found it becoming increasingly frustrating to secure and provide for client needs in a broken system. Inspired to find an easier way, we embarked on the adventure that is now highJinx.

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.
