Alongside an experienced guide, take a walk around the graveyard at the former St. Mary Magdalene's church. Meet some of the residents, and spot our unusual tombstone once featured in Ripley's Believe or Not.
The tour then makes its way to the nearby Picton Courthouse. Here, while viewing the exercise yards, jail cells and gallows, your guide will tell the story of Peter Lazier's murder in 1883, and the subsequent trial of the two suspects. The tale ends with an infamous double hanging based on what some say was dubious evidence.
These tours will be offered both in-person (when restrictions allow) and virtually.
In-person tickets will be limited, and therefore must be purchased in advance. For more information, call 613-476-2148 ext. 2524.
