Joshua Ward House in Salem, Massachusetts:The Joshua Ward House…

Joshua Ward House in Salem, Massachusetts:

The Joshua Ward House in #Salem, #Massachusetts was constructed in 1784 over the site of the former home of High #Sheriff George Corwin, who played a vital role in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. It’s said that Sheriff Corwin often took suspects back to the basement of his house to engage in various acts of interrogation and #torture, with many townsfolk even claiming that the man derived pleasure from these acts of violence. As the High Sheriff of Salem, he was also in charge of confiscating the property and belongings of those who were accused of #witchcraft. Four years after the Salem Witch Trials in 1696, Sheriff Corwin died of a heart attack at the age of 34, which many believed was due to a curse that was put on the man by those he sentenced to death. According to legend, his body was stored for years in the #basement of the home before finally being interred at Broad Street #Cemetery due to fear that the victims’ families would seek revenge. Since Sheriff Corwin’s death, many of the house’s residents have reported witnessing his #apparition, as well as two other vengeful #spirits believed to be a man and woman who were accused of witchcraft. In 2015 the Joshua Ward House was remodeled, and now serves as The Merchant #Hotel, where guests and employees report experiencing a variety of unexplained #paranormal activity, such as temperature fluctuations, disembodied voices, and flickering lights. Others report witnessing doors opening and closing by themselves, and objects such as books and other personal belongings being picked up and thrown by an unseen entity. The Joshua Ward House was added to the National Register of #Historic Places in October of 1978.

Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, Massachusetts:

The 93-room Hawthorne #Hotel in #Salem, Massachusetts first opened in July of 1925, and is said to be one of the most #haunted hotels in the #UnitedStates. Those staying overnight at the location report witnessing #apparitions, as well as hearing disembodied voices and footsteps, or witnessing furniture and other objects being moved around or rearranged by an unseen entity. Others report witnessing flickering lights, experiencing unexplained temperature fluctuations, and feeling a strange presence, as if being watched by an unseen entity. Guests staying in Room 325 often report hearing the disembodied sounds of a baby crying, in addition to experiencing other unexplained #paranormal phenomena, such as lights and faucets turning on and off by themselves. Guests staying on the historic hotel’s 6th floor report awaking to the apparition of a woman pacing back and forth in the middle of the night, especially in Room 612, and others report experiencing an uncomfortable feeling, as if they are somehow not alone. During the 1970’s, the Hawthorne Hotel was used to film an episode of the popular television show, #Bewitched, and in 2007 the location was featured on an episode of #GhostHunters, where members of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (#TAPS) were able to gather evidence and confirm rumors of paranormal activity at the location.
