Ghost Walks tour delivers supernatural ghost in Hamilton, Niagara ahead of Halloween


A local ghost guide says he can’t guarantee attendees will see a spirit on one of the many tours to Hamilton and Niagara’s most haunted locations, but there’s a chance.

“No, if I could (guarantee it), I’d be a millionaire” ghost walks guide Daniel Cumerlato says 900 CHML Hello Hamilton.

It’s a busy time for Ghost Walk tours with paranormal believers searching for stories of the sordid alleged truths behind horrific acts and tragic accidents in municipalities across Canada with Halloween just a few weeks away.

Local stops include the Howling Tunnel in Niagara, the ruins of the Hermitage in Ancaster and a story or two about the oldest known ghost in Hamilton – the Dark Lady.

Mentioned in an 1800s poem as the “devil himself”, she is believed to inhabit what many consider Hamilton’s most haunted building, Custom House near downtown Stuart and MacNab streets.

Cumerlato says he’s never seen it frankly, but insists a survey a few years ago records the movements of the Ouija board in an experiment.

“She made the connection,” he recalls.

“I asked her why she was angry and she said ‘poem’…so I promised her that from then on we would never read the poem again. After that, things calmed down a bit. »

The apparition chaperone says his interest in ghost walking dates back to 1999 and a visit to Bellevue Mansion on Belvidere Avenue near the escarpment.

“We had some pictures of the place before they tore it down, and that was the very first article I ever wrote…the history and the ghost stories around this house,” according to Cumerlato.

At the time, he reported that the energy still existed on the Void Earth via video allegedly capturing flashes of light and orbs – evidence in parapsychology used to determine the existence of a ghost.

“So from that day on, I realized that I really enjoyed history and ghost stories,” he said.

Ghost Walks started four years later in Hamilton and is now showcased in a small shop on Queen Street in what they call “Canada’s most haunted town”, Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Tours are running throughout the year to visit historic and haunted places in the GTHA, each trip lasting 75-90 minutes.
