Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Joshua Ward House

Salem, Massachusetts

Built on the foundation of the former sheriff that was responsible for hanging witches during the infamous Salem witch trials’s house, many reports of hauntings in the house have been reported. The sheriff used an old English law that allowed him to crush a suspected witch with rocks to make him plead guilty or innocent. The man eventually died, but he did so, he “cursed” the sheriff. The sheriff died 5 years later of unknown causes. Candles have mysteriously been taken out of their holders and melted, trash cans have turned over, it is always cold in the corner of one room, alarms are set off for no reason, one guest has seen an elderly ghost sitting by the fireplace, and a picture has been taken of one of the ghosts

The ending was creepy, I’ll give you that but it was really confusing. You want a good scare I’ll give you one!:
My boyfriend has two eve doors in his room right? Well, there was always one door that nobody could ever get open, one night at like 2 in the morning the door fell down! No windows were open or anything… but when we looked inside there was this chalkboard that was built into the wall, it had this really weird hand writing on it and it dosn’t erase! But it dosn’t end there. We but up a blanket so we couldnt see inside, to keep the cold out, and at night it moves in and out, like it’s breathing. And it only does it at night! Beat that!!

I lived in Salem for a year while I attended Salem State College. I was an active member of the historical society of the city and college. There was never a law that allowed such tactics to be used on a supposed “witch”. It just happens that they tried that with Giles Corey because he refused to put in a plea of either guilty or not guilty. They used decided to use the rocks as a means of torture to make confess either way.

I remember going to Salem on June 23, 2006. My mom and I visited a graveyard at night. I remember taking a picture of what turned out to be mysterious balls of light. And when I looked around, n there was no sourse of light behind the tombstones.
