Boston Haunts' historical-based tour Fridays & Saturdays

Thank you for a fantastic 2016 season! Boston Haunts returns May 2017 after our Provincetown ParaCon slotted for May 12-14 here.

With a nod to Charles Dickens and Boston's bevy of literary giants like Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe, explore the ghosts of Boston's past with a lantern-led walk through the city's historic haunts based on the internationally famous author's spirited stay in the 1800s.

What historic hot spot made Dickens scream with delight? What Victorian-era murder oddly inspired him? Which historic hotel and Dickens hangout is Boston's most haunted?

The 90-minute long Boston Haunts walking tour kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 23 starting at at the Irish Famine Memorial (24 School Street) near the State Street "T" Stop and the new Walgreens running Fridays-Saturdays at 7 p.m. and will expand in September.

"Haunted Boston Harbor" book hits August 23, 2016

Ghosts lurk in the waters near Boston’s historic seaport, haunting the secluded islands scattered throughout the harbor. Boston Harbor brims with the restless spirits of pirates, prisoners and victims of disease and injustice. Uncover the truth behind the Lady in Black on Georges Island. Learn about the former asylums on Long Island that inspired the movie Shutter Island, and dig up the skeletal secrets left behind by the Woman in Scarlet Robes. From items flying off the shelves at a North End cigar shop to the postmortem cries of tragedy at the centuries-old Boston Light on Little Brewster, author Sam Baltrusis breathes new life into the horrors that occurred in the historic waters surrounding Boston.
