established in 2019
In early 2018, my long-term corporate newspaper job came to an end.
But sometimes what seems like the end is a new beginning.
In 2019 I founded a walking tour company in my hometown called Salem Haunts, with a portion of all proceeds donated to local charities, including the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem and the Stephen M. O’Grady Foundation, in memory of my brother (www.stephenogrady.com).
I specialize in smaller tours which is more enjoyable for all. This allows us to get to know each other a little better and see more sites. Tours are generally 1-10 guests, but never higher than 20 even in high season, unless it is a private group. If you want a theatrical performance in costume, this is not the tour for you. But if you want perspective into our city from someone who has lived here her entire life, I’m happy to help you explore my hometown.
I am the sole operator and I will always be your guide.
Thank you for visiting my site, and I look forward to exploring Salem with you!
