With a nod to Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol," explore the ghosts of Boston's literary past with a lantern-led walk through the city's historic haunts based on the internationally famous author's spirited stay in the 1800s.
What historic hot spot made the author scream with delight? What Victorian-era murder oddly inspired him? Which historic hotel and Dickens hangout is Boston's most haunted?
The 90-minute long Boston Haunts Holiday walking tour kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, 2013 starting at the Irish Famine Memorial (24 School Street) near the State Street "T" Stop and the new Walgreens and continues Thursdays-Saturdays at 7 p.m. through Christmas.
As far as haunted sites, the information was pulled directly from the "Ghosts of Boston: Haunts of the Hub" book which was released last year. In addition to the ghostlore, the Boston Haunts holiday tour boasts spooky tales from the crypt pulled from the darker side of the city's history.
