Perth Museum consists of the 1840 stone home built for Canadian senator and merchant, the Honorable Roderick Matheson. It has been restored to reflect the 1800s era–so well, in fact, that the family members have known to appear in spirit. Caretakers and visitors alike have reported seeing their apparitions.

  1. In June 2015 sleeping on an airbed at a friend’s in William Street, Merrickville, the garden leading to the Rideau Canal, to save power I turned off my nightlight at 3am and shortly after, in the now pitch dark, I felt like a hand pressing the duvet hard against my lower back. I remember yelling ‘Geez’! in shock and quickly switching the nightlight on again. Are these old residences haunted?
