E204

Happy Halloween!

It’s the spookiest time of year! In the haunted spirit of Halloween, we’ve dedicate this episode of Museum Chat Live!  to some of the creepiest and eeriest stories in St. Catharines’ history.  You might want to listen with the lights on…

*Spoiler Alert*

The St. Catharines Standard reported on each of the disturbing events we feature on the podcast. The St. Catharines Museum holds 600,000 negatives taken from St. Catharines Standard photographers since 1936. Below are a few of the photographs in the Museum’s St. Catharines Standard Collection that document the horror stories. Take a look… if you dare.
