  • The assassination of Thomas D'Arcy McGee
  • The Faceless Ghost of the old Carleton County Jail
  • Take a "cell-fie" in the cell block
  • Visit death row and stand before the last working gallows in Canada
  • Hear of the levitating coin and the custodian who saw something walk through his bedroom wall
  • Was an innocent man hanged for the crime? Is he still buried on the jail grounds to this day? Take part in our mini-mock trial and decide for yourself!
Your tour begins and ends at the old Carleton County Jail.
