Unexplained footsteps at Seven Oaks House. A woman vanishing into thin air at the Hotel Fort Garry. Spirits reaching out from beyond the grave at the Pantages Theatre. Just what is happenng in Winnipeg's heritage buildings at night? Early Winnipeg was a booming city full of excitement with no shortage of murders, cheating lovers, and tragic accidents; all play a role in Winnipeg's reputation as one of Canada's most haunted places.

Haunted Winnipeg shares with the reader the city's best-known ghost stories, as well as some lesser-known tales. Hear about the people who may be haunting these historic sites while learning about the buildings' unique and creepy history.
