Historic SDG Jail

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to investigate one of the most sought-after haunted sites in Ontario!

Phantoms of Yore is back for another series of paranormal investigations at the Historic SDG Jail, one of Cornwall’s creepiest landmarks.

Constructed in 1833 and active until 2002, the jail served as both a minimum and maximum security facility over that time. Several executions were carried out on-site, in addition to the suicides and murders. Due to the jail’s dark history and frequent ghost stories, it has attracted the interest of ghost hunters from across North America.

How it works

This 3.5-hour special event will begin with a full briefing on the haunted history of the site, the equipment to be used, and the best practices to follow when collecting and analyzing evidence. Then you will have the opportunity to venture inside the jail – in the dark – to see what you can discover.
