Fort Battleford, the sixth North-West Mounted Police fort to be established in the Northwest Territories, is the site where Chief Poundmaker was arrested and six Cree and two Stoney men were hanged for their participation in the Frog Lake Massacre and other killings in 1885. It is said that the officers’ headquarters are haunted by a ghostly surgeon, the town hall has a ghost named Charlie, and the phantom smells of chocolate-chip cookies baking and cigar smoke have been reported. Some visitors have heard war cries, seen strange lights or felt an odd uneasiness.
