This historic house has sat abandoned for over half a century but is currently for sate. The house was originally built in 1823, and there are stories of witches and slaves living in a barn located in the back garden. The slaves are rumoured to haunt the property, and people have reported weird things happening.

Sorry, but I call BS on the slave story. If this house was built circa 1823 (after the burning of then Newark) in 1813, there would be NO slaves there.
” In 1793 Upper Canada (now Ontario) passed the Anti‐slavery Act. The law freed enslaved people aged 25 and over and made it illegal to bring enslaved people into Upper Canada.”
As for “witches,” that would be difficult to prove, yet Niagara-on-the-Lake has no known history of witchcraft being practiced (or persecuted for) there. I would, however, seek the counsel of an aboriginal elder on this. There may be something related to Algonquin folklore/spirituality.
