About 1,600 deaths were recorded while the sanatorium was still in operation. A reality TV show which covered the building claimed that strange voices of children were heard while they filmed the show. Flashing lights also appeared from nowhere.

HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel
HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel is located in Ottawa, Ontario and the facility was built in the 19th century. Many gruesome murders and executions took place within its walls. Many inmates were hung; the surviving ones were left to live in poor sanitary conditions in over-crowded rooms. A few unlucky ones faced worse fates than death; they were confined in dark rooms and chained to the ground with their faces down for almost 24hrs in a day. Excavation of the property in recent years led to the discovery of graves. People who visited these jails have reported seeing the ghost of a man who is believed to be Patrick James Whelan. Whelan was executed by hanging after he killed Thomas D’Arcy McGee, a renowned journalist. Click the next ARROW to see the next photo!
