Black Cat Historic Day Tour
October 7, 2017, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Travel around the city of Salem and relate stories of its amazing history. Enter the ancient burial grounds that are the eternal resting places of some of our country’s most prominent figures, view the stunning architecture of the past three centuries, and set foot on the same waterfront that saw trade from the furthest port of the rich East. From its humble beginnings as a city founded on the idea of peace for all, to the site of the largest incident of witchcraft hysteria in the modern world. Learn how it became one of the biggest shipping ports in America, played host to some of the most famous authors of all time, and learn some of the biggest secrets this city has to offer!
Please arrive a bit early so we can check your tickets. Cameras are welcome and encouraged! We go out rain or shine, please feel free to bring an umbrella, and we will have some available for our patrons as well. The tour takes about an hour and a half to two hours depending on your particular group and the number of questions asked. You will not be rushed, but we do need to cover a lot of ground. The actual walking distance is less than a mile, so please wear comfortable footgear and weather appropriate clothing!
Tickets ($15 for adults, $7 for children ages 6-12) may be purchased online in advance at BlackCatSalem.com or in person at Pamplemousse at 185 Essex Street.
