McKay Avenue School, now the Edmonton Public School Archives and Museum, is believed to be haunted by a construction worker named Peter who fell off the roof in 1912. The ghost has been known to move carefully placed chairs around the room and open drawers and scatter their contents. Ghost investigators asked if the ghost could make a noise if he was there, and the sound of a hammer immediately followed.
