If you have almost a million dollars and don't mind owning a building that may have a haunted history, this spot in downtown Salem is just for you. 

The historic Joshua Ward House on Washington Street (next door to Dunkin' Donuts) is selling for $900,000, according to this listing posted on Weichert.com.

It's a three-story brick Federal-style commercial building that was listed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1978

Is it Haunted?

According to this write-up on HauntedHouses.com, Joshua Ward built his mansion on the land where the infamous Sheriff George Corwin once had his house/jail in the 1680s.

"Sheriff George Corwin, nick-named "The Strangler," had the duty to interrogate suspected witches and warlocks, and carried out the painful death sentences, during Salem's shameful witch hunting era, which took place in the years of 1692 - 1693," the site reads. 

According to the history tab on HauntedHouses, Corwin died of a sudden heart attack in 1697, and was interned in his cellar because the ground was frozen and his family was afraid that his body would be dismembered by an unruly crowd.

His grave remained there for many years before being moved to Broad Street Cemetery, according to the site.

Reports of Apparitions

  • A woman with crazy black hair, possibly one of the suspected witches.
  • Giles Corey, who was falsely accused of being a warlock
  • Sheriff George Corwin

A special shout out to Rebecca Barber for pointing out the listing on our Salem Patch Facebook page.
