Halloween Spots

On October 31, 2008 · 0 Comments - won't you be the first?

It’s Halloween here in the United States, so for a little fun today let’s feature some geography that fits within that spooky theme.

One of the more obvious choices would be Salem, Massachusetts, site of the famous witch trials in 1692-1693. Over 150 people were imprisoned for witchcraft, with nineteen of the accused victims hanged and one crushed to death under stones.

Here is the Salem Witch House, the only surviving building with a direct connection to the events. It was owned by Judge Jonathan Corwin who presided over some of the trials.

In a less serious vein, here are some interesting geographic designations (towns, mountains, bodies of water and such) that might be worth visiting on Halloween. Some of these are strange to the point of making me wonder whether they’re real or not, but they actually appear on Google Maps.

Hope you all had an enjoyable Halloween.
