Salem, MA is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Hawthorne Hotel. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys. 


Frank Poor first envisioned a modern hotel for the business traveler in Salem. Construction started in 1923 and the hotel was completed in 1925.


There is a large ship's wheel, in the restaurant and some claim the wheel moves on its own.

An employee, who was responsible for setting up an area referred to as the Lower Deck finished his duties and left the room. When he returned a short time later, all of his work had been undone and the room was completely rearranged.

Rooms 325 and 612 seem to be the most active. In room 325, there are reports of the lights and water faucets turning on and off with no explanation. Some guests report being touched while trying to sleep or hearing the sounds of a child crying.

The spirit in room 612 is said to be that of Bridget Bishop, the first person to be executed during the Salem Witch Trials. Many have seen an apparition of a female, believed to be Bridget. Also, the smell of apples is overpowering in the room and throughout the structure. Many think this is connected to Bishop because she owned an apple orchard and the Hawthorne is where apple orchard was located.
