Oakville Historical Society Ghost Walks

A great way to celebrate Halloween is with a family Ghost Walk around Olde Oakville. Take an eerie walk back into Olde Oakville of the 1800s. Be guided by a character from the past who could be a mayor, merchant, ship captain or a Chisholm relative. Each ghost leader shares his or her life and you will also meet other ghosts along the way. Interact with the spirits.

Walks last for 1 hour. Refreshments and discussions follow.

Walks require the ability to walk about 12 blocks. Walks are conducted in English. Group bookings are for ten (10) or more people. Other language groups with their own interpreter, may book as a group. Provide name and contact details of the language interpreter. We do have a French ghost to lead a few French group walks. This must be booked well in advance and mention “French Group Booking”.

individuals and groups with mobility, language or other issues must contact us well in advance. We can then discuss whether the special needs can be accommodated.

Groups are usually 20 participants or smaller. Two groups may go out at the same time.

Light refreshments and discussion are included after the walk. People with food allergies should use their own discretion before enjoying provided refreshments.
