Few places conjure up thoughts of Halloween quite like Salem, Massachusetts. Settled by Europeans in 1626 at the site of a Native American trading village, the city's history seems made for haunted happenings. This is mostly because of its association with the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, when more than 30 people were tried and condemned as witches. Centuries later, the residents of Salem have embraced this cultural identity, and their ties to witchcraft truly come to life with plenty of Halloween events.
Throughout October, visitors to this engaging New England town will find plenty of Haunted Happenings in Salem to connect with this city's haunted and colorful past.
