Quebec City

Another Haunted Canada stamp. This one was cancelled in Quebec City. The Château Frontenac is a hotel, originally built in 1893. It is a National History Site and a prominent feature on the Quebec City skyline. The hotel was named after Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac, who was governor of the colony of New France between 1672 and 1698. Apparently his ghost haunts the hotel even though it was built nearly 200 years after his death.
