People have always wondered why there are so many ghosts near The Blue Ghost Tunnel.
Did you know that the Welland Canal has been plagued with mysterious deaths, accidents and tragedies over the years? I believe that when they buried 663 people under The Old Pumphouse, those spirits became angry and lashed out at the workers building Lock 6 of the 4th Welland Canal. If you look on my The Blue Ghost Tunnel site you can read the article from the newspaper about the Lock 6 Disaster and others from Lock 5, 7 and 8.
What these locks share in common is The Old Pumphouse is used to put water into the locks. There was a train disaster next to the Welland Canal and there was an air disaster over Lock 15. Two young boys drowned in the 3rd Welland Canal’s Lock 22, which just happens to be beside Lock 6 and 7 on the other side. Coincedence, I think not. I believe the Ghosts of the Welland Canal are haunting the area and will continue to haunt and cause problems until they are given a proper burial! In the meantime, you can take a look at the pictures on four sites that I’ve created. The Blue Ghost Tunnel, Blue Ghost Tunnel West End (East End will soon be up on the site), Paranormal -Ghosts-Orbs- Ecto-Mist and The Keefer Mansion. All four sites are linked on each page if you take a look at the lens roll located on the right side of the page.
