If you’re heading to Saskatchewan, you are in for a real treat. Saskatchewan is known to be one of the most haunted territories in Canada. Stories and legends of ghosts are quite common in many of the towns. The following are two of the most haunted places in Saskatchewan – and in all of Canada.
St. Louis Ghost Train, St. Louis, Saskatchewan
Ever seen a ghost train? If you pass through the village of St. Louis, Saskatchewan, late at night, be on the lookout for the ghost lights out on the dirt road where the train tracks used to be located. Although the train tracks are no longer there, it seems that ghost trains travel through the area every night. Whether these lights are a paranormal phenomenon or the perfectly natural occurrence, the curious appearance of these lights nearly every night has attracted curious onlookers for over thirty years. People visit from all over Canada to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon. Some believe the lights to be a ghost train. Others believe that the light is a lantern held by the spirit of a train conductor who lost his head on the tracks and will search eternally until he finds it.
Government House, Regina, Saskatchewan
There is no doubt about the fact that the government house is haunted. In this house, the ghosts even have names. Howie, the affectionately named ghost of Regina’s Government House, has been credited with the opening and shutting of doors without aid of human hands, unaccounted-for footsteps on the stairs and the mysterious movement of items from one location to another. Too many things happened that could not be explained. Anyone who has been in the house knows that supernatural occurrences take place quite frequently in the mansion. Some theories hold that “Howie” is actually the ghost of the former cook of Lieutenant-Governor McNab, who died in the house from a tragic death. However, others claim that there are more than one ghost inhabiting this historical mansion.
