Haunted History Walk

Want to explore the haunted past of Kemptville on your own terms? Download our Kreepy Kemptville walking tour guide. 

As you wander through the tranquil streets of Kemptville, and from the corner of your eye you discern movement, look again and it evaporates! Remember all may not be how it seems. Could it be the early residents who died beneath those now still waters near the Prescott Street bridge you see? Could it be a Bigfoot moving beyond the spill of light from the lampposts? Do souls rest easy when their grave markers are tossed aside? And what are those at the next table to yours going to get up to on their way home tonight? Small towns aren’t always what they appear.

The Kreepy Kemptville Walking Tour evolved from a series of articles. Tales of death, murder and intrigue were gathered from early newspapers, legends and lore!
