Until this day various houses in the town of Gananoque have been reported haunted and there have been reports of a man wondering the grounds in and around the Gananoque Cemetery. This is the ghost story of Frank Edwards who suffered from shell shock after the war of 1812. A film based on this true event is set for production in the year 2012.
Another great ghost legend in Gananoque is Bolt Castle. Bolt Castle is both romantic and haunting. Gilded Age multi-millionaire George Boldt ordered the castle built as a testimonial of his love for his wife, Louise. But Louise died, and the grand stone estate was abandoned for many years. Bolt Castle is restored now, but you can still hear the lovers’ footsteps in the long, echoing corridors.
