Fort Henry was built during the War of 1812 in Ontario, Canada. The fort was constructed to protect the nearby Point Henry because of its proximity to the Royal Naval Dockyards. The fort that stands today is not the original. It was fortified later on to protect the waterways even more thoroughly. Today, it is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a living museum. There are more than just the living here. The fort also seems to harbor spirits from the past. Ghost tours are hosted and dozens of people have claimed to have had paranormal experiences. Join us and our listener Sarah Norton as we share the history and hauntings of Ontario's Fort Henry. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by listener Melissa Antonelli and features the Swinging Sailor and This Month in History features Robert Kennedy shot and killed.
