Gallow's Hill Ghosts

I live in the "Witch City" Salem, Massachusetts. I have been doing professional paranormal investigations since becoming a licensed ghost hunter, while living in New Orleans, back in 1999.

Now that I'm in Salem, I do a lot of my own personal night ghost hunts up at Gallow's Hill. This is where, back in 1692 they hung 19 innocent people as "witches". Many people associate the city with the Salem witch trials of 1692, which the city embraces both as a source of tourism and culture -- police cars are adorned with witch logos, a local public school is known as the Witchcraft Heights Elementary School, the Salem High School football team is named The Witches, and Gallows Hill, a site of numerous public hangings, is currently used as a playing field for various sports.

The original witches hanging tree does not exist anymore, and the deep crevasse where they tossed the dead bodies of the poor wretches has closed in upon itself.

Apparently the Witch Hysteria was just a way to get even and settle old grudges with your enemies, get rid of competitors, take over someone's property and destroy political opponents.They even hung two dogs for giving people the "evil eye", crushed one old man to death under heavy stones, over a period of several days, and hung the other unfortunates from a tree, on the highest spot overlooking old Salem Towne.

Witch Ghost
Several years ago, under a full moon, I was able to capture this picture of a ghost walking by me, very closely. I did not see this with my eyes, only the camera picked it up. You can see the torso, legs and head and one arm starting to take shape.

gALLOW'S HILL GHOST. You can see the torso, legs and head and one arm starting to take shape.

According to many professional ghost hunters when a person dies a violent sudden death, they tend to stay "earthbound" for a very long time, sometimes centuries. I am going back tonight....wish me luck!


Why do ghosts linger? Why don’t they move on? Are all ghosts only here if they are hostile? Or are they here to protect loved ones? Do suicide and murder victims tend to stay “earthbound” more often than other spirits? What causes poltergeist activity? These are the questions we try to answer during our investigations. On our nightly ghost tours in Salem, Massachusetts, we’ll answer those questions, as well as explain paranormal theories regarding ghosts. You might even photograph spirits at various locations during this tour. (We have actually had tour guests experience ghosts touching them, pulling their hair, or sending them screaming into the night!) We also have a “Guest Ghost Gallery” of ghost photos taken by our guests during these tours. These are also posted on Official Web Site www.spellboundtours.com.

If you feel you have an unwelcome “guest” living in your home or place of business, call us at (978) 745 – 0138 and we’ll listen to your story, conduct an in-depth telephone interview and see if it warrants a follow-up investigation. No quack calls please! We take this very seriously, conduct our research scientifically and don’t like to have our valuable time wasted! Our clients are assured complete privacy and actual locations will be kept secret at the request of our clients.

We offer Salem’s ONLY authentic supernatural and paranormal tours. Our tour guides are also members of “Paranormal Investigators of New England”, a private company that researches and documents haunted sites.

On our “Vampire & Ghost Hunt Tour” in Salem we visit documented haunted locations that we have personally investigated, successfully capturing ghost images on film. We visit a haunted graveyard, an old, extremely haunted jail and the jail keeper’s house. We will take you to the site of the original “witch dungeon” from 1692, where those accused of witchcraft were incarcerated. We’ll also go by the house where the mysterious “woman in black” has made appearances for decades. And if time allows, we’ll stop by a notorious murder site from the 1830’s. We cannot enter these buildings as most of them are closed at night or privately owned. You will however have plenty of ghost photo opportunities at each location.

We encourage our tour guests to bring cameras (loaded with 400-speed film) to take your own ghost photos during this tour. We have posted some of our guest ghost photos on our web site. Many people have had strange and terrifying encounters with ghosts on this tour, including fainting, crying, throwing cameras at ghosts, or even screaming and running off into the night! The only guarantee we can give you is that all of the places we visit on this tour are still haunted and they continue to have a lot of paranormal activity!!!

Part of this tour includes the origin of vampire folklore and legends, the historical character known as Dracula, the superstitions about vampires in early New England settlements and burial practices to prevent vampirism in New England. We’ll tell you about the real “Dracula”. We’ll also tell you about documented early New England vampire cases. Are there really modern vampires? What is a true vampire today? Who are these “creatures of the night”? What about “vampire crimes”? You’ll find out on our nightly “Vampire & Ghost Hunt Tour”!!!

Please join us... If you dare... on a real hunt for the ghosts of Salem!!!
