Doing further research on the Lift Lock there have been many deaths here. The first one and the popular one was Arthur (Art) who died of a heart attack while working at the Lift Lock. The second one we found was a person named Billy who possibly fell down one of the pillars and was unable to be saved and so was buried under the cement. We also discovered there has been many suicides. One popular story is a woman committed suicide with her child and then her lover also committed suicide soon after her death at the same spot where she died, a true love story that went terribly wrong. Either Way many deaths have occurred at the Lift Lock. Whether these stories are urban legends or factual, we had some encounters here which makes us believe the Lift lock is haunted and searching for Art came up with some interesting encounters and possible findings this could be true and maybe we found Art.
The lift lock was designed by Richard Birdsall Rogers, a superintendent of the Trent Canal (part of the Trent-Severn Waterway). In 1896, he travelled to France, Belgium and England to see existing examples in operation. Part of the reason that the lift lock was built was political. At the time a federal election was taking place and in order to shore up local support the project was fast tracked.
In 1896 construction was approved and contractors signed on prior to any real working drawings being ready. The government still fell, and Richard Rogers, who was concerned about his links to the former administration, only released portions of the working drawings bit by bit. It worked, allowing him to remain on the job as the main designer.
The final project included many engineering firsts. It was the first lock to be built out of concrete, and at the time was the largest structure ever built in the world with unreinforced concrete. The lift lock officially opened to the public to a crowd of thousands on 9 July 1904, and remains in full use today.
