The Spirits of Charlestown Haunted Historical Ghost Tour

The Spirits of Charlestown - Haunted Walks Lectures and Tours

2023 TOURS WILL TAKE PLACE: 10/27, 10/28, & 10/29.

The Spirits of Charlestown Haunted Historical Ghost Tour is a fascinating and fun walking ghost tour through the gas-lighted streets in Charlestown. We stop at five Boston historical sites where you’ll hear about what happened at those locations in the months, weeks and days leading up to the Battle of Bunker Hill. You’ll hear the stories of slave girls, nurses at a field hospital, patriot officers and soldiers dying during the Battle of Bunker HIll, and many more.

Our 90 minute walking ghost tour leaves from City Square Park outside the Chelsea Street entrance (near the fountain) directly across the street from the Charlestown Bridge. Here are a few suggestions: Dress warmly. You will be walking up and down several mildly sloping hills. Wear comfortable shoes. There may be cracks or iron grating along some of the sidewalks we use. Please watch your step. You are required to sign a liability waiver in order to take the tour. Feel free to take as many pictures as you want. At night, you should be able to capture ORBs.

The tour ends at the Historic Warren Tavern where we’ll talk about our extensive paranormal investigations, the Tavern’s Boston Tea Party connections and the Masonic Lodge led by Paul Revere. After the haunted history tour go inside The Warren Tavern for a cold Sam Adams or delicious Warren Burger and soak in the atmosphere of a 1780 tavern. You’ll receive a 10% discount on all non-alcoholic items on the menu.

We enjoyed your presentation at the Charlestown Historical Society last night. Great job!


Thank you for a wonderful program! Attendee We learned so much about the history of Charlestown on your tour. We love that you talk to ghosts and they talk back!


I have to tell you that your presentation tonight was fantastic. I loved the opening slide show. It was so professionally done. The music/song was perfect. MaryLee – you were terrific. MaryLee…thank you for your presentation. It was perfect for the crowd that was present. You left them wanting more, so maybe next year we can give them more. I think knowing that there are some famous spirits roaming our town was a pleasant notion for many there. Great job and thanks!


MaryLee gave us a lively and entertaining tour of some interesting Charlestown Haunts. She was professional and engaging throughout, and she answered every one of our many (many) questions. We learned a lot about the history of Charlestown as well as the mechanics of ghost hunting and her beliefs about the spiritual realm. We especially enjoyed hearing about MaryLee’s paranormal adventures at local places and her tales of the Charlestown that used to be.I would not hesitate to recommend MaryLee’s Spirits of Charlestown Tours.

Your talk was wonderful and I think well received. Thank you for yesterday’s event! You made the topic accessible for all of the attendees. I noted the response from the people that attended. I think they walked away with an appreciation of what you do as well as another dimension to historic sites.


Overall, it was super, especially, since the weather was cooperative.


Loved the tour. Loved closing my eyes and trying to imagine the people and lives. Thank you.


What a great tour! The personal experience element could not be beat. You are warm and courteous to boot!
