Is this place haunted? Decide for yourself! A rare chance to visit the Huron Historic Gaol after dark!
This guided tour shines a flashlight into the dark corners of local history. Staff share the true stories of the prisoners and staff who died inside the gaol’s walls, as well as the circumstances that landed criminals, vagrants and ‘lunatics’ behind bars. Hear about local true crime and alleged ghost encounters, and what happened to inmates after death. Includes free exploration at the end of your tour and the opportunity to use the gaol’s spirit board. Explore over 100 years of Huron County history with some of the tragic and sometimes strange tales of the men, women and children who lived and died at this national historic site.
