The canal has been extensively used for leisure activities for the past century despite being constructed as a military project to create a secure connection between Montreal and Kingston. The Rideau system, one of the oldest continually running canals in North America, was recognised as a Canadian Heritage River in 2000. It has 24 manually controlled lock stations. In 2007, the canal received the UNESCO World Heritage designation.
Enter one of North America's spookiest structures! Explore the cellblock, death row, and the final operational gallows in Canada while hearing the eerie ghost stories and grim history.
