In a place as historically rich and delightfully spooky as Salem, a good ghost story isn't difficult to come by. However, at the Salem Inn, the reported happenings are more than just stories. Someone from Salem's extensive past still remains, trying to communicate with the living-- but who? Find out for yourself in Art & Craft, a theatrical experience designed by History Alive, Inc. and the Salem Inn. As part of a team investigating these paranormal happenings, you have the chance to collaborate with two local experts, explore the Inn's historic buildings, and solve a long-forgotten mystery.
For years, the Salem Inn has heard reports of spiritual activity in and around their properties. While none of it implies malintent, both the Inn's employees and guests are convinced that something--or someone--is trying desperately to communicate. Among these witnesses is local historian Louisa Rogers, who has experienced the most spiritual activity of all during her residency at the Salem Inn. In the hopes of discovering the cause of these happenings, the Inn has called upon Louisa Rogers, Cora Sprague-Fox (a local medium), and you to get to the bottom of it.
With the help of Cora and Louisa's respective expertise in spiritualism and history, you have the opportunity to establish a connection between the Inn's activity and the ghosts of Salem's past. Who walks these halls unseen, and what are they trying to say? Most importantly, what will it take to put the past to rest?
Art & Craft continues its debut run on February 21 - March 1, 2020, at the Salem Inn at 7 Summer Street, Salem MA; event itineraries are provided upon ticket purchase.
