I’m Adam 12, so any time I make a list it’s a list of 12. That being said, here are The 12 Most Haunted Places in Massachusetts.
And you’d better believe I have credibility when it comes to all things haunted and spooky. First of all, I grew up on the North Shore. So starting in grade school (Greenwood School, represent), I was herded onto a big, yellow school bus with my classmates each and every October for field trips to Salem, MA. One year it would be The House of the Seven Gables, the next year it would be a walking tour of sites surrounding the Salem Witch Trials. When it comes to haunted places in Massachusetts, I’ve been hitting ’em all, and from an early age.
Add to that the fact that, when I first started dating the mother of my children, she lived smack dab in the center of it all. She had an apartment at the old Customs House building in downtown Salem. So I got to experience the spooky Salem vibe year-round. Which was both a blessing and a curse. One year, we had gone to bed on Halloween night and the ruckus outside the window was so intense we actually had to leave the apartment. We got out of bed after midnight, got dressed, packed overnight bags, fought through the crowd, got in the car, and drove to a local hotel. Halloween in Salem is wild.
The 12 Most Haunted Places in Massachusetts
We’re not just talking Salem here, though. Sure, the Witch City will be represented. But this is all about the most haunted places in all of Massachusetts. I complied my list from this list by Boston Ghosts, this list from Thrillist, and this list from TimeOut if you want more spooky sites. Now, get scrolling!
