The Drummond Hill Cemetery
Niagara Falls, Ontario

On October 5th/2003 we went out to the location where one of the bloodiest battles took place here in Ontario. Tonight's location was The Drummond Hill Cemetery in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Drummond Hill is located at Lundy's Lane and Drummond Rd. near Clifton Hills in Niagara Falls. Legend has it that the British artillery had occupied the hill and was under the command of a Lieutenant General Gordon Drummond (he was a Canadian by birth,) from the war of 1812.

At approximately 7:15pm on July 25th/1814 a General Winfield Scott had advanced his American troops up the hill to fight the British artillery to seize their guns. Gordon Drummond fought a very hard battle and many soldiers died in a battle that was described as one of the bloodiest battles on this hill.

The battle went into a see-saw effect and just when the Americans thought they had won, the British regained the hill a little later on. By around 1am the Americans had retreated to Fort Erie and some went to the camps at Chippawa. The death toll reach approximately 1,700 men from both sides that had died in the battle and littered the hill that is known as Drummond Hill today. Some of the men died a more gruesome death under the saws of the 19th century surgeons in the field after the battle.

Today it has been reported by the folks that live and work around the hill that they have seen ghostly soldiers from the war march up the hill. Some have even reported seeing balls of light zipping within the cemetery. Some claim to hear from time to time shouting, sounds of men running as well as what sounds like gun fire in the distance. Visitors and historians have reported similar things within the cemetery.

The history that surrounds the cemetery on the hill known as Drummond Hill is a must see both for the visitor and paranormal researcher. When one enters the grave site it seems as though you have passed into a time long forgotten.


The pictures that are shown in this investigation have what we believe to be real paranormal content. This of course is our OPINION ONLY. It is up to the individual to decide for themselves if what we had captured on camera is paranormal or not! All pictures taken were witnessed by those in attendance while they were still on the camera. With that said we hope you, the viewer, enjoy your visit to our site.

Investigation #1

On October the 5th/2003 myself, Cathy, Chad and Cindy arrived at the Drummond Cemetery in Niagara Falls around 3am in the morning.

Once we got out of our cars and headed for the main gate to the cemetery we could feel a cold spot and a feeling we were being watched. This was our first time at this location and I for one could not get over the immenseness of what had happened on this hill many years ago....

The very first picture I took was of the gate that leads into the cemetery and I was surprised to capture some activity at the gate. The next couple of pictures I took of the gate showed nothing.

Once I had entered the cemetery I had a feeling of something watching me, complete with the spider web effect across the hands and face. I came upon this fenced portion of the cemetery with a huge tree sitting right in the middle. There were only a few headstones within the fenced area. Looking at the tree it came to mind that this tree was very old. Maybe 200 to 300 years old. The stories that this tree could tell.....

I got to one side of the fenced area and could see something like a shadow moving within the area. I took this picture and got some strong ecto mist.

Just a ways from this portion another fenced area that held an above ground crypt. All the while having a feeling of something or someone watching your every move.....

Not too far away stood a very attractive headstone with pillars. As I had approached this area I could hear very faint bangs like that of gun fire in the distance. It made me look around for the others to ask them if they could hear what I had heard. Only thing is they were in another area.

I took a few more pictures around this headstone and managed to capture some more ecto mist with energy to it covering some head stones. At the time the temp must have dropped 10 degrees.

I took another shot in the same direction where I had captured the ecto mist. It seemed that I had caught it again but this time it appeared to be moving away to my right.

I found this head stone by the church playground that I thought was very interesting.... Nothing of a paranormal nature to this photo but the stone itself was interesting, with a soldier on a horse....
