Ramezay Castle, aka the Château Ramezay, is a historic structure built in 1705 as the home of then-governor of Montreal, Claude de Ramezay. In 1775 it served as a war headquarters for the Continental Army, and was visited by Benjamin Franklin in 1776 as he tried to recruit aid for the Americans during the Revolutionary War. It is now a museum, and is said to be haunted by O’Leary, a guard, and Miss O’Dowd, who died in 1985. PHotos have been taken of a ghost here, and witnesses also have heard voices and detected the phantom smell of sulfur.
