Boston ghosts and gravestones

When the sun goes down in Boston, the ghosts and ghouls come out! The Ghosts and Gravestones Boston Tour ensures that you meet every one of them and learn each of their warped and wailing histories. Step aboard the Trolley of the Doomed and join your host, a seventeenth century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation. This wretched creature is doomed to travel the streets of Boston and relay the stories of the unfortunate souls he has encountered and the macabre events he had been witness to during his purgatory. Walk amongst the dead inside two of the oldest local burying grounds. Learn about the occupants of the gravestones and hear about the biggest grave-looting scandal in New England’s history. Hear about Boston's most sinister characters, including a cursed privateer, a homicidal opera singer and the infamous Boston Strangler. The city is almost four hundred years old and in that time, it has seen more than its fair share of murders, wars and trouble, earning it the reputation of one of America’s most haunted cities. Your ghoulish guides will captivate you with stories of Jolly Jane, the ‘Nightmare Nurse’ who killed over thirty of her patients and Cotton Mather, often credited with laying the groundwork that inspired the Salem witch trials through his influential writings. This tour is suitable and entertaining for adults and teenagers who are interested in learning a less conventional history of the city of Boston, complete with a little fake blood and a few theatrics.
