Eaton Hall King City Circa 1940

Here is story sent by one of our readers...

Greetings!

I was recently attending a wedding at Eaton Hall, a building within the Seneca College Campus (just north of King City), and I heard rumours of ghost sightings within the building. I'm looking for some history or any information regarding this place.

Here's what I know so far:

Sir John Craig Eaton is the original owner but didn't live long enough to see its completion. Lady Flora McCrae Eaton was his wife; she lived there. This establishment served to care for burn victims from World War II. One of their sons hanged himself on the third floor in a 'circular' room (the room is located to the left of the elevator). Their other son apparently drowned in the lake. Lady Flora supposedly walks the halls; some staff members have seen her. One staff member said, "...if you see her, say hi". Lady Flora died in 1991 (not very long ago).  (Editor's Note: We missed this on the original post, and thanks to another reader point this out... we should correct this... Lady Eaton passed away 1970. We apologise for any inconvenience or errors this might have caused.)
This is all the information I can find about the Hall. If you can find anything, my wife and I would love to hear it. I've done a lot of searching on the internet but haven't found a single thing. I'm gonna check out your links and see if I'm lucky.

Thanks for your time.
