What more could a province want than a place in it called 'Spooky Hollow' that has a legend dating back through the pioneers in the early 1800's? Ontario has just that near Vittoria!
The phantom peddler might still be stalking his territory in this apt named area! The story goes that the peddler asked a local household for a nights stay from the elements with his entire life and all belongings in his backpack, it was a necessary rest which he was granted... except... after that, the peddler nor his pack were ever seen again... at least not in "mortal" form. The legend says that for days after the man vanishing, the chimney of the house belched a black soot into the air... sign of an amateur cremation???
According to JRC's Mysteries of Ontario, journalist Eric McVeity wrote in 1938 that a grey spectral figure is seen wandering (before the article in the 1800's) in the unnamed valley by travellers which is why it was dubbed "Spooky Hollow". According to the book, all that remains of the house where the peddler might have met his fate is a few chimney bricks... and possibly his ghost.
