Built sometime in the early 1900s, the Newman Wine Vaults consist of two brick-and-stone wine cellars made by English firm Newman and Company for the purpose of aging their port wine. Now the location is a museum and is haunted by the ghosts of an African slave and a child, among others. Some visitors claim to have been pinched or pushed by spirits here. The site has been featured on Creepy Canada.
