Are you afraid of the dark? Come find out by joining a Legends and Lanterns walking tour at Old Salem. Cross our haunted covered bridge if you dare! Once on the other side, a costumed guide will light the way by lantern through Salem’s nighttime streets. Visit several haunted stops in the historic district, where you will hear tales of a local ghostly legend, or interact with a person from the past. You might even catch a glimpse of a ghost or two while visiting our historic buildings!
Tours are scheduled every 15 minutes and last 45 minutes to one hour. Participation is limited, reservations for tour times recommended. Open spaces will be filled each night on a first come, first serve basis. For light rain or drizzle, please bring an umbrella or raincoat. Tour content is suitable for all ages, but does require extensive walking on streets and uneven brick sidewalks.
Admission: $35 per person (plus applicable sales tax)
Space is limited and pre-registration is required (walk-ups cannot be accommodated). Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a registered adult. Online registration will be available.
