Most of us have heard about the Salem witch trials by now, but that is only the tip of the iceberg for this small and spooky Massachusetts town. Salem is allegedly home to numerous accounts of paranormal activity, and many say that you can’t go anywhere without feeling an eerie presence. This small coastal town is home to dozens of sites that have spotted supernatural activity, making it one of the most haunted towns in all of Massachusetts. From Burial Point to the Witch House, Salem is as creepy as it gets. However, don’t discount this town as all ghosts and spooky stories; Salem definitely is one of the best small towns in the U.S.

While you probably knew about the Salem witch trials, did you know about the rest of the small town’s scary history? Have you visited any of these spooky sites? We’d love to hear about your thoughts and experiences in the comments!
