Salem Tunnel Tour
Come and venture into the underbelly of Salem, Ma. Follow the route of the smuggling tunnels built by a series of corrupt politicians, pirates, and sea captains that connect the wharfs to their homes, stores, and banks in town. Learn about the plot of Elias Hasket Derby Jr. , the son of the first American millionaire, to help a series of Senators, Congressmen, officials, a Secretary of the Navy, and a Superior Court Justice to avoid paying President Jefferson's duties on customs. Special tours will venture through the basements of the old banks and stores in town to see the sealed off tunnel entrances, trapdoors, secret doors, tombs, and ghosts. We also can make special arrangements for paranormal investigators. Our tours are filled with the history of the Underground Railroad, ghosts, murder, corruption, gambling, and rum running.
