Watson's Mill, a working industrial heritage site in Manotick, is shutting down this weekend only for its annual Haunted Nights event. From the 19th to the 22nd of October, the entire mill turns into a three floor haunted house - adding to its rumoured status as a haunted spot in Ottawa.
The Mill is apparently haunted by the ghost of Ann Crosby Currier, the second wife of the mill's original co-owner Joseph Currier, and reported sightings of her seem to increase around Halloween time.
According to the story, Ann's dress became caught in one of the turbine shafts on the second floor of the Mill - tragedy ensued and she was killed. If the Mill's haunted house doesn't scare you enough, their ghost sightings definitely will.
The setup includes a maze of macabre scenes on their main floor, followed by a setup of the "underworld" bellow, all in a journey to make it unscathed to the second floor of the mill.
Tickets are only $5 and available at the door. For more info, check out the Watson's Mill website.
