Τι θα κάνετε

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.

Πού θα είστε

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.

Excellent tour! Michael really knows about the period, and he took time to engage with all of us, even walking us to a pub after the tour. We had a great time and learned a lot. Definitely recommend this experience.

Really very interesting and a good balance of discussion around local Bostonian issues but also how these feature in an increasingly globalised stage from the Victorian era onward. Interesting stories with a murderous backdrop - what else could you ask for? Loved it.

We enjoyed the tour. Michael was very good at setting the scene and had amazing knowledge of the time period. Would definitely recommend this if you want to see beautiful houses and learn about the history of serial killers in Boston.

What a great experience! We loved this tour. Great stories with detail we couldn’t have gotten elsewhere, told in a way that made you feel as if you were there when the events happened. Moving around from location to location was fun and we came away feeling like we understood the neighbourhood’s history much better than before. Well worth it and a fun way to spend a beautiful day outside.
