History

In 1875 the North West Mounted Police (precursor to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: RCMP) arrived at this site to build a fort. It was the first such fort to be built in Northern Alberta and was designed to bring law and order to the region. Numerous outlaws were hung on the grounds but only one was female; Florence Lassandro known as the “Mob Princess”.

Eventually a town built up around the fort that now is a thriving community just north east of Edmonton. The fort site is now a museum and heritage site that is open to the public from the May long weekend to the September long weekend.


Paranormal Activity

The apparition of the “Mob Princess” is the most frequently seen ghost in the old fort grounds but other executed criminals are also seen. The apparitions are seen both in the buildings and wandering the grounds.

Other activity: disembodied voices and whispers; light anomalies; phantom footsteps; feelings of being watched, not wanted and unease; doors opening and closing on their own and objects moving on their own.
