Attractions and Sights/Places to See in Massachusetts
The Colonial houses of Deerfield; Minute Man National Historical Park; the original House of Seven Gables in Salem; Old Sturbridge Village, where the lifestyle of the early nineteenth century can be appreciated; the Old State House; the idyllic island of Martha's Vineyard; Faneuil Hall in Boston, where revolutionaries conspired; the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge; Old North Church, where silversmith Paul Revere began his famous ride; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; a recreation of the lifestyle of the Pilgrim Fathers and of Wampanoag Native Americans, as well as a reproduction of the Mayflower, at Plimouth Plantation, Plymouth; the Salem Witch Museum; The Salem Witch House, once the home of the infamous Judge Jonathan Corwin, who sat at witchcraft trials so bizarre, cruel and deadly that the governor of New York granted asylum to those accused who were fortunate enough to escape (the trials seemed so strange even for their era that a team of investigators was afterwards sent from England, where the execution of witches had ceased and where witchcraft executions on such a scale had not been seen for nearly half a century, during the chaos and puritanical insecurity of the English Civil War); the frigate USS Constitution in Boston; the beautiful beaches of Cape Cod; and Boston's Freedom Trail, taking in many landmarks, are among the attractions of Massachusetts.
Myths, Legends, Monsters, Folklore, Scary Stories and Ghosts in Massachusetts
Captain Alfred Bulltop Stormalong (Stormalong, A.B. geddit?), the gigantic captain of the massive ships Courser and Tuscarora, whose many adventures included life or death struggles with the deadly kraken; the giant Maushope of Native American legend, who lived on Martha's Vineyard; speculation and rhymes about Lizzie Borden, acquitted of the axe murders of her parents (their home in Fall River, at the time of writing, is the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum, allegedly haunted and with an ouija board in the lounge); the altar in Wizard's Glen near Dalton, where a hunter called John Chamberlain rescued a Native American girl who was to be sacrificed to the demons of the forest; the spectre of the stubborn septuagenarian Giles Corey, which appears as a harbinger of disaster in Salem where, being pressed to death with weights over two days for refusing to plead to the charge of witchcraft, Corey merely shouted "more weight!" (although it was the only instance of pressing a man to death in New England history and cruel even for its time, Judge Corwin, whose house still stands in Salem, actually stood on Coreys chest, demanding that he plead); the Roxbury pudding stones, said to be the remains of a giant's dessert, found near Boston; and the mounted spirits of Lafayette and Washington who keep watch over the grave of Satan, who was captured and killed by Shakers at Mount Sinai, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Massachusetts.
The demon that finally clawed a retired pirate to death at Cape Cod; Spring Heel Jack (Spring Heeled Jack) who terrorised London, England, many years before emigrating to Cape Cod; the "spectral evidence" submitted at the Salem witch trials, supported by the "expertise" of that credulous chronicler, Cotton Mather (in witchcraft trials, if you could prove that you were elsewhere at the time of the alleged crime, it was actually held AGAINST you, as it was believed that one of your apparitions was a demonic spectre - "You were in two places at once, eh? Condemned out of your own mouth!"); the supernatural sinking of the island where stands the Nix's Mate beacon, named after the ship's mate who cursed the island before being wrongly executed for killing Captain Nix; the Dover Demon, possibly an ET; tales of witchcraft and witch hunting, although the Salem witch trials are history, not legend; the sea serpents that have been seen around Cape Ann and Massachusetts Bay; and the alchemist who sought the elixir or life, in a turreted house at the junction of Essex and North Streets, in Salem, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Massachusetts.
