Haunted by the 19 "witches" who were put to death in 1692 and 1693 in
the famous Salem Witch Trials, Salem is a popular tourist destination
for those interested in all things ghostly. Several of
the "witches" are said to haunt Gallows Hills, where they were hanged,
while others float about other places in town. One can't-miss historic
site: the House of the Seven Gables (pictured), built in 1668 and the
inspiration for Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel of the same name.
