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.

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.

I had a great time on Michael’s tour. He had lots of interesting crime stories to share and led us through the beautiful Victorian south end neighborhood. I learned quite a bit about Victorian architecture too. A fun experience!

Micheal was an excellent storyteller. He had a vast amount of knowledge on his topics and the muders he shared with us. He had a way of making it fun and interactive. It felt like a walking murder mystery game. It was lovely to be able to experience the beautiful Victorian neighborhoods of Boston, even in the rain! Thank you ♡

Michael was an amazing guide! He toured us around the south end of Boston and didn’t mind stopping for us to take pictures or to answer my random questions. He was very knowledgeable, and a kind gentleman.
