Friday the 13th has arrived, and a Winnipeg location has made it into a spooky Google top 10 list.
The Fort Garry Hotel came in at number six on Google Canada’s top 10 spookiest Street View spots. Google is celebrating Canada’s haunted landmarks in advance of Halloween.
Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City, and Keg Mansion House in Toronto were in the top five. Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria topped the list.
The Fort Garry Hotel opened in 1913 and is designated as a national historic site of Canada.
Room 202 of the hotel is said to be haunted. It is believed a woman hung herself in the closet of the room after hearing of her husband’s death in a car accident, according to Google.
Darke Hall in Regina, The Five Fishermen Restaurant in Halifax, Capitol Theatre in Moncton, and the West Point Lighthouse Inn in O’Leary, PEI rounded out the list.
