Fort Niagara

Buffalo, New York

BUILT: Unknown
OPERATION TIME: Unknown to present


In 1759, the Battle of Fort Niagara took place between the British and the French and Native Americans for two weeks. Even despite the battle going on, two Frenchmen began to fight over the attention of a beautiful young woman. Their duel resulted in the winner decapitating his opponent with his sword. The severed head bounced on the surrounding cobblestone, and fell into a well.

The headless ghost of Henri LeClerc has been seen several times wandering around Fort Niagara in search of his lost head. Rumor has it that when there is a full moon, Henri climbs out of the well and walks to the French Castle, an old brick building in the fort.
