Haunted houses in Northumberland

A web site has listed Cobourg and Port Hope’s haunted houses. Two locations are given, but there are local tours in both town where you can hear about many more.
Ontario – Port Hope – Monkey Mountain – Walking through the woods at night you can see little red lights following you and hear little kids screaming and running around you….but no one is there (around the spot in town where natives had their long houses)

Ontario – Cobourg – The McKenzie House – Believed to be haunted by 3 spirits. One is an elderly lady that haunts the Rose room she is said to tuck people in at night a remove things from the room only to return it days later. She seems attracted to a table in the room. Before the room was initially decorated the woman who had bought the room was wondering how she would spruce it up. When she entered what now is the Rose room she suddenly felt compelled to decorate it with a rose motif, she later found out that the rose was the elderly woman?s favorite flower. The second ghost to be seen is a bagpipe player although rarely seen his music is often heard. And last but certainly not least is a little girl name Elizabeth. She was said to have died of pneumonia and she likes to play hide and seek and also watch people from the staircase. All ghosts are perfectly harmless. And seem to be a welcome attraction to the visitors to this lovely mansion.
