Scary Historical Walk Through Pet Cemetery Coming to Mississauga


Published October 24, 2018 at 7:24 pm


With Halloween just around the corner, now is the time to indulge in a very local historical walk that explores the spookier side of Mississauga.

If you missed Heritage Mississauga’s recent Haunted Walk, fear not–there’s another one coming up, courtesy of the Port Credit BIA, this weekend.

The BIA recently took to Facebook to announce that spooky history connoisseurs are welcome to participate in its last historical walk of the year.

The walk, set to kick off at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, will commence at La Villa Bakery (331 Lakeshore Rd. E.) and last about an hour and half.

What will you be exploring?

According to the post, the tour will take participants through the gorgeous (but allegedly haunted) Adamson Estate (pictured below) and a pet cemetery.

According to the BIA, you will learn some history of the Adamson and Cawthra family and some ghost stories.

For those who are unaware, Adamson Estate is a 13.33 acre waterfront park with public gardens and a private but stunning (it belongs to the Cawthra-Adamson Division of the Royal Conservatory of Music) main house.

It was originally the summer property of the Cawthra family and was built in 1919, so you know any 99-year-old home has its tales.

The BIA is advising anyone who participates to dress for the weather (the Weather Network is calling for a high of 6 degrees) and bring a flashlight.

It will be dark.

It will be spooky.

And you might feel the presence of a long-deceased cat who has been waiting for his family to visit him for a very, very, very long time.
