Haunted Happenings in Salem, MA

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Salem Witch Museum

The Salem Witch Museum is a museum in Salem, MA about the Witch Trials of 1692.  The museum is based on the actual documents of the trials.  A multi-sensory presentation including 13 life sized stage settings that re-creates the horrible and truthful events known as the Salem Witch Trials.

Live Performance of “Cry Innocent”

The audience is the jury at the trial of Bridget Bishop, accused of witchcraft. Hear the testimony, ask the questions and you decide the verdict – innocent or guilty?

Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour
