an apparition has been seen in the library and around the staircase. A lady in black loiters about in one of the bedrooms on the second floor and a lady in white's disconcerting presence has been noted in the kitchen. One report from the book by John Colombo, Haunted Toronto, also tells of a gentleman in a yellow velvet coat walking through the walls of the Conservatory from east to west. This action would correspond with doors that existed there before a remodelling job.
Who are these ghosts? One possibility is the author Goldwin Smith who lived here for many years, or the Grange's butler William Chin who wrote upon leaving the Grange after 50 years of service, "Left dear old Grange at 1:00 o'clock p.m. to be [a] wanderer". Perhaps it is Smith's assistant, Algernon Blackwood, who did not like helping Smith and when he went to England, established himself as a great horror writer. The ladies who haunt are a mystery.
