Witches, Hysteria, and Hauntings

The Salem Witch Trials ended in 1693, but the memories of those frightening, hysterical times have never left this town. If you feel a chill on your tour, know that it could be more than just the coastal breeze!

Walk down the narrow cobblestone streets with us as the stories unfold from Salem’s haunted past and present at sites like The Salem Inn, Ropes Mansion (a site featured in the Disney film Hocus Pocus), and Salem Old Town Hall.

The first Witch

Today, a seafood restaurant occupies the spot where the Orchard of Bridget Bishop stood. She was the first woman in Salem accused of being a witch. A man named John Louder testified he fought off an attack by a hideous, deformed monster, chasing it from his house, he followed it as it retook the form of Bridget Bishop and disappeared into her orchard. She was eventually executed in June of 1692.

Since then, hundreds of accounts of eerie and unexplained apparitions have been recorded in this town; even the first president of the United States, George Washington, experienced a haunting during his visit to Salem in 1789 and fled the town immediately!

There are plenty of museums and historical attractions to enjoy in Salem. Still, only this tour can bring you the exhilaration and thrill of retracing the steps between each of the city’s most haunted spots and standing in the presence of their rich histories.

We hope the whole family will be able to bear the harrowing tales while being in the presence of Salem’s buried citizens. Test your bravery, and join us!

Why is Salem Haunted?

The famed “Witch House,” is the dark and foreboding former home of Judge Jonathan Corwin, the man responsible for condemning accused witches to their death. This building is the only one in Salem with actual ties to the Salem Witch Trials that is still standing today.

The tour culminates with a visit to Salem’s Old Burying Point Cemetery, dating back to 1637. This is the final unhappy resting place of Jonathan Corwin, prosecutor, and judge for the 20 women put to death.

About 16 miles north of Boston, Salem is a town of just over 40,000 inhabitants. Salem’s commitment to preserving its shameful history has made it a perfect spot for spirits to linger and for visitors to experience a connection with the past.

Each year during Halloween weekend, about 250,000 visitors and tourists flock to the town in order to experience the best of Witch City. How did Salem become the center for all these haunted happenings?

Salem’s rich history and the fact that many of its oldest structures and most notorious sites are well preserved today, giving it a truly eerie feeling.

The Salem Ghost Tour takes you to all of these sites and reveals their true stories so that you can feel connected to the history that took place there. Experiencing these stories in the dark and at the sites where they occurred is a unique experience that can’t be recreated by simply reading about their history.
