Nova Scotia can be found on the southeastern coast of Canada. Just like any place in the world, there are haunted tales and eerie legends to be discovered, including the capital of the province. Halifax is not only the economic and cultural heartbeat of the region, but also holds numerous scary stories to explore.
When it comes to Halifax, the hustle and bustle of everyday life takes a temporary pause when you mention some of the locations throughout this area. For starters, an explosion took place at the Halifax Harbor, causing a man to be thrown through a window located in the upper part of St. Paul’s Church. It is said that today, his profile can be seen within the glass of the window. Even though the window, as well as the glass has been replaced numerous times, a darkened silhouette will still make an appearance.
At the Brewery Market, individuals who have been on the premises during the night have heard the quick-moving footsteps of an unknown presence when no one is supposed to be in the area. Some claim to have encountered the vision of a man dripping with blood in one of the mirrors of the bathroom. The man looked as if he was attacked by knives. If you turn around to see if anyone is behind you, you will see nothing.
When you are hungry, you may or may not want to pay a visit to the Five Fisherman Restaurant. Some brochures even circulate regarding the ghost that is supposed to reside at this location. Located on the second floor of a building, an employee claims that they were trapped in a room by the force of an unknown assailant, which is thought to have been a ghost. When a fellow employee tried to assist the other, the ghost apparently tried to stop them by throwing an object at them, injuring the employee in the process.
At Kings College, there have been many tales regarding the haunting of this location. Located in a section of the college, called the Pit, the ghost of a janitor is believed to roam the premises. He has been seen wearing a yellow uniform. You will not catch too much of this apparition; he disappears just as quickly as you catch sight of him.
When reaching the Nova Scotia Sheriff Hall, you may encounter the ghost of a woman, who committed suicide at this location. She decided to hang herself on one of the upper floors and her ghost has been seen on that same floor ever since. St. Michael’s Church is a spot where many different eerie tales exist. Most of them surround sweet music that plays all by itself. The organ at this church has been known to play on its own without the help of any visible individuals. The ghost of an older soul may also haunt this location. Several members of the clergy claim to have seen him kneeling at one of the pews, disappearing when anyone gets too close to him.
