Have you ever seen any ghosts in a Saskatchewan ghost town?
Because there are some wraith-like figures imprinted on the highway in the remains of the town known as Galilee.
Located on Highway 36 roughly 50 km south of Moose Jaw, Galilee is a motley collection of a few scattered structures that are sinking back into the earth. A classic prairies ghost town, there’s another mystery at foot here.
It looks as though someone – or something – mysteriously spray-painted some figures on to the pavement. At least that’s the going theory. The figures, which are strangely child-like, are more than a little harrowing to look at.
Want to take a look at these bizarre imprints for yourself? Take a cruise into Galilee via Google Street View.
According to this blog, Galilee was first settled in 1913, along with a post office, a blacksmith shop and the Sugar Loaf School. The school closed in 1956 and the elevator was demolished in 1960.
A couple of decaying buildings are all that’s left.
Not surprisingly, we once visited the town last summer on the way back from Gateway Festival in Bengough.
We didn’t see any ghosts. Just the places that the inhabit.
