In 1861, a tragic accident resulted in the death of a young bride at the new Mill in Manotick. Today, locals say she still walks the lonely floors of the mill looking for her husband; others say she’s not the only one. On March 27th Watson’s Mill concludes its lecture series with the Haunted Ottawa Paranormal Society as they reveal their ghostly findings from years of investigations. Their findings are intriguing to say the least. In 2007, this crack team of investigators began exploring the grounds of Watson’s Mill looking for the elusive Ghost of the Mill.
