Was ihr unternehmen werdet

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.

Wo ihr sein werdet

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.

This is hands down the BEST tour I have ever been on. Michael is an incredible story teller- he gets you hooked in and participating by asking you questions about how you think the killer would have accomplished getting away with their crimes. He was also very communicative beforehand on where to meet and how to get there. Overall very personable and nice guy! Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Boston!

This tour was small and intimate, and very thorough! I learned a lot of interesting details that I wouldn't have found many other places. Michael was warm and welcoming, and made it a friendly and fun experience.

Had an absolutely swell time on this tour! Very informative, felt engaged and enjoyed the friendly banter throughout the tour. I felt that Michael has thorough knowledge of Boston's less popularized history and felt welcome in the group.

Michael was great! He is really engaging with his story telling and will give you a chance to try to guess the answer to a question before he continues. I always like people who do that because it keeps me interested and into their story that they are telling.
