Discover the history of Manitoba sites through the stories of the ghosts that haunt them.

Manitoba may seem like a quiet province, but its prairies teem with paranormal activity. A ghostly groundskeeper still does his rounds at the Delta Marsh Field Station; strange noises and apparitions of children in 19th-century clothing have been reported at Lower Fort Garry; and Mrs. Kennedy still welcomes guests to Captain Kennedy’s House—just as she did when her home was built in 1866. Haunted Manitoba shares eerie stories from all corners of the province and places them in the context of Manitoba’s rich history.

Komus is simply fantastic at combining historical facts and social trends into a tension-building narrative” –the Manitoban
