October 16th to 30th, 7, 8 or 9 pm, $15.10/adult; reservations required at brownpapertickets.com Costumed interpreters will share tales of misfortune in Fort Langley’s cemeteries, streets, and inside the spooky Hudson’s Bay Company fort. Tours
cover stories of Hudson’s Bay Company workers’ long dead, but still lingering spirits, including Louisa and William Emptage. Many claim to have seen Louisa in early mornings searching for William at the Fort Langley cemetery. If you don’t manage to glimpse these two, the tour ends back at Fort Langley National Historic Site in the site’s most haunted building, which some claim is home to a young boy’s ghost who still wants to play.
Finish the tour with a hot drink around the bonfire.
