Što ćete raditi

In the late 1800s, Boston experienced a rash of gruesome murders and unexplained phenomena. The “Boston Medical and Surgical Journal” observed, “The increase in the number of the criminally insane has been exceptionally rapid…” Most interesting was the way one community reacted to this – The South End, the country’s oldest and largest Victorian neighborhood.

Not only was there a reawakening of the notorious Witchcraft Trials that happened 200 years earlier, but people were also accused of being vampires and conversing with the dead – all while serial murders and molesters lurked just out of sight.

Explore this quaint post-Civil War suburb, its architectural gems and strange statuary that tourist rarely get to see. Then delve into the concerns of the people who lived here, their art, science, politics and stories of true crime, with demonstrations on Victorian phantasmagoria and the new fields of forensics and toxicology.

Did you know that one of Boston’s wealthiest entrepreneurs was a woman? So was America’s first accused vampire. We’ve also hosted mad scientists, homicidal healthcare workers and psychologists who treated the mentally ill in unsavory ways.

Buried the beneath this neighborhood's eye-catching English gardens and breathtaking brick rowhouses is a unique experience you won’t want to miss, and all within a few blocks of Copley Square and Back Bay.
Other things to note
We will walk outside, about a mile, through the streets and parks of the South End. We will see architecturally significant homes and churches, the background for a number of historic movie and shows. There will be some graphic discussion of violence and murder. Participant discretion is advised.

Gdje ćete biti

Designed to reflect the refined, English sensibilities of the 1800s, the South End has gone through many changes over the years. It was created as a suburban neighborhood for the upper-middle class. In the 1900s, it became a haven for cultural diversity, emigration and women’s rights. Enigmatically, it has also been an urban wasteland, a hotbed of crime and a mecca for artists. Now, it's some of the most expensive real estate in the country.

We enjoyed Michael's story telling from beginning to end. We enjoyed how he took us through the local places as he weaved in his stories. Very interesting to hear local stories.

Michael genuinely wants you to have a good time, he's not just going through the motions, which makes this tour even better. It was like taking a walk through the neighborhood with an old friend, with a little murder talk thrown in of course! Michael does an excellent job of setting the stage for these murders, so much so that I was a little creeped out going to sleep alone in my hotel room that night. I particularly liked all the history, especially the architectural history, that I learned about on my walk with him.

The tour was really awesome. We learn about Victorian Boston and more. The murder stories were told with suspense and mystery. I really love this tour and really recommend it!

We had a great time. Took us back to Victorian era Boston and learned a lot about a very interesting topic. Michael was great and anyone who likes history/mystery would enjoy,

This was a fun and fascinating way to get to know the South End. Michael is an excellent storyteller and a gracious ambassador and cultural mediator of the Boston. We loved moving between time periods, imagining the South End back in the late 1800s, and jumping around in time to bring us to the present day. All sorts of fun facts were shared that will stick with us for a lifetime. My prurient stepdaughter was scintillated by this tour that was riveting and delivered by a true pro. Freedom tour shreedom tour, go get ghoulish and try this trip out instead. You'll leave full of creepy facts to drop on your friends and loved ones for years to come.
