Old Salem Jail in Salem, Massachusetts:
The Old Salem #Jail on St. Peter Street in #Salem, Massachusetts was constructed in 1813. It was the site of over 50 #executions before finally being shut down in 1991, after being sued by several inmates due to inhumane living conditions. In 2008 the #historic property was purchased and converted into luxury #apartments, with the ground level also serving as an #arcade bar called Bit Bar Salem, and a #restaurant called The Great Escape. Residents living at the old #jailhouse often report witnessing the #apparitions of former #prisoners who were hanged at the location, as well as feeling unexplained cold spots or sudden drops in temperature. Others report hearing the sounds of disembodied voices and screams, in addition to feeling a strange presence, as if they are somehow not alone. Although the Old Salem Jail is now home to more modern amenities, much of the original brick and other features of the jail still remain, including iron-barred doors inside the building, and a trap door in the floor which marks the site where former inmates were hanged.
