Ottawa is known for having its fair share of haunted buildings, but one rarely talked about scary sight is an abandoned town just an hour’s away from downtown.
Just outside of Perth is Allan’s Mills – an abandoned mining town that became vacant in the 19th century. While not necessarily haunted, to this day, much of the original buildings still exist, including a general store, a post office and even a small school house.
Practically every original building is still in tact, making it one of the best preserved ghost towns in Ontario and Canada. You’ll find the town – or more so, a hamlet – down a long stretch of gravel road near Perth. There’s no streetlights going down the road, so if you’re afraid of the dark, perhaps don’t visit at night.
