The late-1800s Craigdarroch Castle is large and haunted, just as a castle should be. It has 39 rooms in over 25,000 square feet, and was built for the family of coal magnate Robert Dunsmuir, although both he and architect Warren Heywood Williams died before it was finished. Its ghost is a lady in a white dress who has been seen standing near a ballroom window. A crying child has been heard in the castle, as well as music from a piano that plays itself.
