Massachusetts, with its rich history dating back to colonial times, is a hotbed for hauntings and paranormal activity. For example, one of the most famous haunted locations in the state is the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River. In 1892, Lizzie Borden was accused of brutally murdering her father and stepmother with an axe. Though she was acquitted, many believe her spirit still lingers in the house, with reports of eerie voices, unexplained cold spots, and even apparitions.

Salem, notorious for its 1692 witch trials, is another example hub of supernatural occurrences. The Joshua Ward House, built on the site where Sheriff George Corwin, known as the "Strangler," once lived, is rumored to be haunted. Visitors have reported hearing footsteps and witnessing shadowy figures.
