On May 19, 1780 a mysterious cloud fell over the city of Boston. In truth the whole state of Massachusetts was witness to this unexplainable event. The day began like any other. The sun rose as on any typical day but by 1pm what seemed like an apocalypse had begun. A strange mist like gas enveloped the entire state and reduced "visibility to a few inches." Around 1am, witnesses began to tell to of having seen the moon turning blood red. By morning everything was back to normal. Till this day, no one has been able to explain these events.

This is just one of the tales you'll hear on the Ghosts and Gravestones Fright-Seeing Tour. Venture on board the Trolley of the Doomed...if you dare. Visit the underbelly of Boston; the things no one speaks of in the open. You'll hear the story of a female serial killer and how she "wanted to kill more people than any man or woman who ever lived." Discover the street where the Boson Strangler drove fear into the people of Boston. Hear the story of the woman in Scarlet, who is said to walk the sandy dunes of Boston Harbor still seeking her final resting place.

Be the honored guests at two of the most (and oldest) cemeteries in the country: the Copps Hill and the Granary Burial Grounds. While walking these hallowed ground hear why men like John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, etc. may not be resting in peace. Learn why there are thousands of bodies buried under the (Boston) Commons and why the North End has tunnels dating back to 1700 beneath it.

If you are interested in the macabre, then you shouldn't hesitate in making a reservation with Ghosts and Gravestones Tour, located outside the Long Warf Hotel at 296 State Street.
