About Witch City Walking Tours
When all was said and done, the infamous 1692 Salem Witch Trials resulted in the execution of 20 people—primarily women—accused of witchcraft. On Witch City Walking Tours' 90-minute Mysteries and Hauntings tour, a local teacher/historian brings to life the true story of this dark historical chapter, guiding walkers through the cobblestone streets filling you in on 17th century stories of the past, bringing them to life once more. The famous witch trials of 1692 are explored as you learn about the rise of Salem and it's wealthy seaport that made it what it is today. Next, the Mcintire district showcases some early feats of architecture on Chestnut Street and the night ends fittingly in the 1637 Burial Ground, one of the oldest cemeteries in the state, for a spooky stroll through the graves of the dead.
