Exploring Salem during Halloween on Friday the 13th

If you’ve been following Cult of Weird long enough you may have noticed I sometimes hijack my sister Elizabeth’s travels to get photos: Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C. So, naturally, when she informed me that she would be visiting Salem, Massachusetts…in October…on Friday the 13th…my brain nearly exploded.

Salem is best known as the place where 20 men and women accused of practicing the “Devil’s magic” were executed during the notorious witch trials between 1692 and 1693. But in recent years, the city has embraced it’s macabre history to become America’s Capital of Creepy. If you’ve read J.W. Ocker’s A Season with the Witch (from last year’s fall reading list) you know there are few places better than Salem to be during the Halloween season.

So I’ll be handing over the Cult of Weird Instagram to Elizabeth to take us on her journey as she explores the “Witch City” this Friday the 13th.
