The supernatural side of Salem, Massachusetts
Salem is a little town near Massachusetts also known as the Witch Village and is paranormally preferred for ghost tours and grave walking tours of the hysterical world of sorcery, witchcraft and witch hunting. Joshua Ward House on Washington street is the spot for witch trials which were a series of hearings and prosecutions on witchcraft that led to witch executions.
The House of Seven gables is a wooden mansion of the 17th century houses the Scarlet letter by the Salem Native writer Nathaniel Hawthorne, period artefacts and the occupants at the customs house right across the street in Broad street cemetery with secret staircases.
The Witch House, home of the witch trials magistrate judge and Salem merchant Jonathan Corwin and his burial place with white obelisk, Salem wax museum and The Rebecca Nurse Homestead are the only mansions open to the public. The bronze statue of Boston’s Red Auerbach Statue called the Bewitched statue is a landmark of the city of Magic.
October is the most preferred month to visit Salem. Haunted Happenings is a month long fest celebrating Halloween and fall in New England.
The Salem Witch museum houses the main presentation of the Witch trials of 1692 based on actual trial documents of the dark period. The traumatic incident of the Salem Witch hunt is brought to life through life size stage sets, figures with a stirring narration in the animatronics show. Psychic reading with a licensed practitioner is possible to know more about the ancient craft of the witches.
