Learn about the chilling, true stories about the city at the Haunted History of Main Street Markham Halloween event.

On Oct. 26, Main Street Markham will be hosting its own one-of-a-kind Halloween event for people of ages. John Webster, the Town Crier, will be taking guests down Main Street Markham that evening, where they will hear all about the true crime stories and ghost stories that have taken place on that very street. Participants will also hear about the history behind the buildings on the street. In addition to the guided tour, there will be tarot card readings to top off the night and to get participants in the spirit of the Halloween season.

“From car theft turn murder to windows opening on their own, there are lots of true and spooky stories along Main Street Markham to hear at the Haunted History Tour,” said Victoria Campbell, Marketing Director of the Markham Village BIA. “Don’t miss out!”
