I am, at this very second, en route away from Halifax, NS, and let me tell you: I will really miss the old-timey houses in the older parts of the city. In my last post, I showed you the most adorable houses of my neighborhood—the dollhouses, if you will. In this post, I want you to check out some others. Specifically, the haunted ones.
As I said in my last post,
Halifax is a cool city, for one thing because it’s one of the oldest large cities in Canada (it was settled by the British in 1749 as a counter naval base to the French at Fort Louisbourg in Cape Bretonsource), which means there are a number of stately residences in the areas that surround downtown. Some of these stately residences have been well-kept, and others have suffered from the difficult Haligonian weather (“If you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes!”). These turn-of-the-century houses appear to me either as dollhouses or haunted houses. And that is the subject of this post (and the last).
I don’t entirely believe in ghosts, but I do believe in the power of the imagination. Check out these houses, which could easily be haunted:
And with that, I bid you adieu, Halifax.
It has been a slice. Truly.
