Boston Public Garden
Where: Beacon Street Boston, MA 02108
Many people do not realize that Boston Public Garden was once the site of executions. Several people were hanged here in Boston's infancy for failing to follow strict Puritan laws. This site is also home to an old burial site that dates back to 1756. The most common ghost sighting reported here is of 2 women in 18th century clothes walking leisurely through the park.
Castle Island/Fort Independence
Where: 2080 William J Day Boulevard South Boston, MA 02127
Fort Independence was used by the military since 1634, so there were plenty of opportunities for some ghosts to have taken up residence. Another thing that contributes to the creepy factor is that Edgar Allen Poe was stationed at Fort Independence, and some say he was inspired to write some of his most ghoulish work during his time here.
Cutler Majestic Theater
Where: 219 Tremont Street Boston, MA 02116
Boston has several historic theaters, but this is the only one rumored to have the ghost of a mayor living inside. The mayor isn’t alone. Others have reported seeing the ghost of a small girl along with a married couple.
Where: Little Brewster Island in Boston Harbor
The Boston Light was the very first lighthouse in the country. It began duty in 1716 with George Worthylake as its keeper. Sadly, George and his family only lived here for 2 years before he, his wife and baby daughter drowned. Throughout the years many people have reported seeing George and his family hanging around the lighthouse, which today is a National Historic Landmark.
Copp’s Hill Burying Ground
Where: 21 Hull Street Boston, MA 02113
Copp’s Hill is the burial place of artists, former slaves and many others. Many ghost hunters report all manner of strange phenomena at Copp’s Hill, which is the 2nd oldest burial ground in the city of Boston.
