The Haunted Castle

The Haunted Castle

Canada's Hatley Castle is reportedly haunted. Built by a former Premier and Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, James Dunsmuir, Hatley Castle in 1908, the castle was used as the Dunsmuir family's residence. When it was sold in 1930, a new family moved into the castle. Eventually, the castle began to fall prey to a series of unexplained events. One of the first sightings were of a young war hero, also a son of the family that moved in, who lost his life in the World War I. His sister saw the dead man walking along the edge of the pool beside the castle. When the castle was transformed into the Royal Road Military College in the 1940s, cadets claimed that Mrs Dunsmuir's ghost would regularly mess up blankets, drop kitchen pots, and pull young cadets to the floor in the middle of the night. We don't know whether the castle is actually haunted or not, but visitors and spectators have often complained of mysterious happenings in and around the castle. Observers have reported seeing a white figure drifting near the windows, and have also claimed to have heard the clashing of kitchen utensils. In 1995, the castle and the estate have been use for the public Royal Roads University.
