Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Omni Parker House Hotel

Founded in 1855, the beautiful Omni Parker House Hotel isn’t only the longest continuously operating hotel in the US but also a top destination for both curious human visitors and restless spirits in the entire Commonwealth. Local lore reports a stage actress and a bearded man from the colonial era still haunt the floors where they took their last breath, adding a spooky charm to this historic establishment.

Boston Common

Any walking tour of the most haunted locations in Boston is not complete without a stroll through the oldest public park in the US, the iconic Boston Common. For a park that’s been in existence even before the country was founded, Boston Common has had its fair share of religious persecutions, public executions, and gruesome murders from the dark days of American history, with the ghosts of long-forgotten souls from the city’s dark past forever tied to the site where they met their horrific end.

Old Granary Burial Ground

Located near the Massachusetts State House, the Old Granary Burial Ground is the third-oldest cemetery in the city of Boston and serves as the final resting place for prominent revolutionary figures and war heroes. Today, the ghost of a colonial lawyer and a passionate supporter of American independence roams his gravesite, and his appearance is often accompanied by a freezing cold breeze that chills you right down to your bones.

The Hauntings of Boston

Steeped in the fiery spirit of rebellion and revolution, not many cities in America ignite passion and patriotism as much as Boston, Massachusetts. However, Boston’s reputation as the “Birthplace of the American Revolution” can be both a blessing and a curse. Once renowned for public hangings and unjust executions, the City of Champions is drenched in dark history and tales of injustice, with the famous Boston Common holding the echoes of rebels, Quakers, and innocent souls caught in the turmoil and oppression of the past.

Long before it even became a part of New England, Boston endured centuries of bloodshed and heartache. Bouts of indigenous hysteria, horrific Puritan persecutions, and a wave of deadly diseases that wiped out the majority of the Native Americans left a trail of restless spirits seeking solace in the city’s haunted corners. With centuries of bloody battles, conflicts, and turmoil, the city has witnessed some of the most horrific events since its inception, inspiring the nation’s most significant uprisings that forever changed history.

Ancient burial grounds shrouded in mystery and historic hotels built on spooky sites would only make Beantown’s chaotic past even more terrifying and intriguing at the same time. So, if you’re brave enough to walk among the spirits of notorious rebels, daredevil pirates, and passionate revolutionaries, Boston Ghosts invites you to journey with us through the dark moments of this historic city, where the past is never truly laid to rest.

 

The Most Haunted Places in Boston, MA

 

Boston’s rich history, revolutionary spirit, historical landmarks, and impressive academic excellence set the stage for a perfect, vibrant cityscape. But when the sun goes down, the city transforms into a haunted playground for forgotten souls, where the restless spirits of those who fought for freedom come alive.

The majestic Bostonian Hotel and Faneuil Hall in the heart of the city stand as a sentinel to Boston’s tumultuous past. The sorrowful spirits of Confederate prisoners are said to be forever tied to the historic Fort Warren, where they met their end. Away from the shore, the haunting never stops, and the USS Salem, a relic of maritime history, harbors tales of ghostly sailors and crewmen still dutifully manning their posts.

Boston Ghosts takes you on a journey through some of the most haunted places in the historic city of Boston and discover the true stories behind the pain, suffering, and sacrifices forged a nation.

Reasons to Take the Boston Ghost Tour

Icon
You Want to Immerse Yourself In The Close Quarter Combat of Boston’s Revolutionary past

Aide-de-camps once walked the streets of Boston. Barricades, lined with bayonets, divided the city. The cavalry rode on horse ... back through Boston’s outskirts and projectiles and mortar fire rained like holy Hell on its rebel forces.

Icon
You Already went to Fenway Park

Boston has been the home of the Red Sox since 1912 and has the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball history. You’ve pro ... bably already gone to the stadiums, and taken a picture close to Pesky’s Pole and the Green Monster, now, you need something more. You need less ESPN and more Stephen King.

Icon
View The Freedom Trail In a different light…at night

There are many significant historic locations along Boston’s iconic Freedom Trail. Multiple landmarks, churches, cemeteries ... , statehouses, schools, pubs, and even the breathtaking USS Constitution ship docked in Boston Harbor. You’ve heard the stories, the guides and placards have drilled in, now listen to the B-side. Learn of the scandals, the controversies, the black deeds, and the ghosts that still linger across Boston’s sacred trail.

Clam-chowder — You’ve had enough.

Maine lobster rolls, mouthwatering clam chowders, raw sea urchins, smoldering smoked octopus sashimi, Molasses baked beans ... after all it’s called Beantown for a reason – and that exquisite Yankee pot roast that you can’t stop dreaming about. Each mouthwatering, each succulent, each mana from the Gods. Oh, and don’t get us started on Boston cream pie. Delicious! You’ve had them all, and now, you’re getting your “just desserts” in the form of packing on too many pounds. Well, there’s good news. Aside from Beantown, Boston has another nickname “America’s Walking City.” The latter is because it has the seven largest percentage of pedestrian commuters of any city in the US. What better way to get in shape than a good-old fashion walking tour?

Icon
You need something more exciting than just great architecture

Boston is home to incredible architecture. There’s no denying that fact. Full of great Victorian Homes across Beacon Hill a ... nd Back Bay. A statehouse decked in Georgian style. Brimming with historic landmarks that preserve Colonial sensibilities. There are even controversial and brutalist buildings such as City Hall that have been incredibly divisive — protests even calling for its demolition. Boston is a city of traditional and contemporary styles. A place where an aficionado can have a field day. Yet, for some, it becomes too much. Sure it might be great to know that it is the origin place of Federal Architecture, but maybe that’s not your cup of tea.

You want to experience the Hub of the America

“Boston is actually the capital of the world. You didn’t know that? We breed smart-ass, quippy, funny people.” — John ... Krasinski



Not just Jim from The Office but most people that have walked through Boston call it“The Hub” as in “The Hub of the America.” Luminaries like Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr, physicians, poet, and polymath have named this city their home. They have been inspired by it to write such quotable lines as, “That’s all I claim for Boston – that it is the thinking center of the continent, and therefore of the planet.” There’s a reason for it. There’s a reason for that sorcery, for that spellbinding quality. There’s also a reason it’s at the center of a different kind of world– the capital of the otherworldly and the dead. Come and discover what makes Boston such a noteworthy, haunted town.
