Find Rebecca Lutes’ Grave in Moncton
The story of Rebecca Lutes is one of Moncton’s most popular ghost stories. Rebecca Lutes was said to be a witch because it was rumoured that she was able to tell the future. Since it was 1876, she was found guilty of sorcery and hung from a branch of a large poplar tree. She was claimed to be buried upside down and her grave was covered in concrete. Her grave has been the spot of many unusual occurrences including strange lights, mysterious fires and more.

Explore the Grey Island Cemetery
In the Grey Island Cemetery, there is a white stone statue that looks like a woman, who is claimed to be the woman who is in the grave. The story goes that she was murdered and her husband spent hours every day talking to the statue. When he died, his body was found at the base of the statue. Today, it is said that the statue will tap your shoulder if you walk around it three times and stand with your back to it. The hand of the statue has been removed but people still claim to feel the tap.

The Dungarvon Whooper
At one of the many logging camps in the 1800s, an Irishman named Ryan was murdered by another logger for the money belt Ryan had been wearing. The night after the murder, a loud whooping noise and screaming were heard. The sound is still said to be heard today on the banks of the Dungarvon.
Tour the Capitol Theatre
The Capitol Theatre is one of Moncton’s most iconic buildings and is also the most famous for being haunted.

He causes cold winds to blow through the theatre, and even appears seated when the auditorium is empty.
