Ever wonder what it was like to be in an old witch jail? Experience it first hand on this walking tour during the spookiest time of year in Salem. Details per the Facebook event:
“Experience the horrors of the Old Witch Gaol (jail), the actual location where many accused were held during the infamous trials. There’s no turning back now. As you step into the Gaol on the eve of the deadliest night of the Witch Trials, the jailor will guide you to hear the stories of the convicted and their final pleas. Their fate has been chosen, but is it deserved? We will let you come to your own conclusions.
