5 Most Haunted Places in Vancouver

I have always had a fear of ghosts. There’s something about the paranormal and the unknown that still sends chills down my spine; like when a door slams behind me, when things fall off the shelf unexpectedly, or when I hear strange noises in the middle of the night. It is part of the reason why I refuse to watch scary movies because I scare too easily. People have always argued that ghosts are real and that they live among us. I try not to think about ghosts just for my own sanity but it might be hard to believe but we live in one the most haunted cities in the world. Here are 5 of the most haunted places in Vancouver…

 

  1. Waterfront Sky Train Station

Yes, Waterfront Sky Train Station is considered to be one of the most haunted places in Vancouver. Allegedly, ghosts walk around the station from the 1920’s. Reportedly women, flapper dancers and men carrying briefcases have been seen at the station in the middle of the night.  According to an article written by the Daily Hive, 3 little old ladies wait on a bench for a bus that will never come. How creepy does that sound?

 

  1. Old Spaghetti Factory in Gastown

My favorite restaurant downtown, one because the food is amazing and two, because it is so cheap. This is a favorite place to hang out, but it is no secret that there are rumors of this place being haunted. There have been sightings of a little girl carrying a red balloon and two mischievous little boys. It has also been reported of these ghosts playing harmless tricks on some of the customers such as tying shoe laces and hiding sliver wear. Now, these so called ghosts wont scare me from eating at my favorite place, but I will be wearing shoes without laces when I do to the Old Spaghetti Factory.

 

  1. The Dominion Building

The Dominion Building was built in 1910, and was the tallest building in the British Empire at the time, until it was surpassed by the Sun Tower in 1912. Today the building is used as an office building in the heart of downtown, but allegedly also has a few paranormal guests living in the building. There is an urban legend that the building is haunted by the architect

 

  1. Deadmans Island

Deadman’s Island is a small naval base in Stanley Park, but it was the citt’s first official grave yard. No one really knows how many bodies are buried there and it really doesn’t surprise me to hear that there have been sighting of ghosts in that area in the middle of the night. Deadman’s Island is one place I, personally, would hate to walk around alone in the middle of the night.

 

  1. Vogue Theater

Located on Grandville Street, the Vogue Theater sits in the middle of one the busiest streets in Vancouver. Built in 1941, the theater today is being used for a live concert venue that features hundreds of entertainment acts every year. According to the Daily Hive, the owner Bill Allman, has confirmed to seeing ghosts first hand.

 

 

Next time you go to one of these places, make sure you pay extra attention to surroundings you never know who or what you will find. Happy Halloween Week!
