Boston is a very old city; the site of Native American settlements long before colonizing Europeans arrived and the location of centuries of crime, misery, and death.
Victims of the deadliest witch hunt in the history of colonial North America met gruesome fates here in 1692. Criminals swung from the gallows in Boston Commons during the city's early days. A mad strangler terrified the town and took the lives of 13 women in the 1960s. And those are just two highlights of the horrifying side of historic Boston.
Reports of weary souls and strange apparitions wandering this city go back nearly to Boston’s founding. What will you encounter when you join the Boston Ghosts & Gravestones Tour?
In fact, many of the city’s oldest residents are still here – in Copp's Hill Burying Ground and the Old Granary Burying Ground.
Visit these colonial burying grounds and see the final resting place of Salem witch trial prosecutor Cotton Mather. Listen to creepy story tellers relive tales of the Angel of Death, the Boston Strangler and other sinister characters historic and modern.
Grave robbers, ghouls, and Gallows Hill are some of the attractions on this frightful trolley tour. A professional cast of frightful characters keep the night alive with history and mystery as you explore some of the city’s most haunted places.
Travel the nighttime streets of Boston for a paranormal version of colonial American history. Book your seat on the Trolley of Doom and have a scary good time!
NOTE: Due to winter weather conditions December through March, access to the graveyards may vary on a nightly basis. If the graveyards are unavailable, an additional trolley/walking portion will be added to the tour.
