O que irá fazer

In the late 1800s, Boston experienced a rash of gruesome murders and unexplained phenomena. Most interesting was the way one community reacted to them – The South End, the country’s oldest and largest Victorian neighborhood. Not only was there a reawakening of the notorious Witchcraft Trials that happened 200 years earlier, but people were accused of being vampires, speaking to ghosts and creating zombies – all while serial murders and molesters lurked just out of sight. Explore this quaint post-Civil War suburb with its architectural gems that tourist rarely get to see. Then delve into the concerns of the people who lived here, their art, science, politics and stories of true crime, with demonstrations on Victorian phantasmagoria – clairvoyant communication – and science – the new fields of forensics and toxicology. Did you know that one of Boston’s wealthiest entrepreneurs was a woman? So was America’s first accused vampire. We’ve also hosted mad scientists, homicidal healthcare workers and psychologist who treated the mentally ill in unsavory ways. Buried the beneath this neighborhood's eye-catching English gardens and breathtaking brick rowhouses is a unique experience you won’t want to miss, and all within a few blocks of Copley Square, the Prudential Center and Back Bay.

Onde estará

Designed to reflect the refined, English sensibilities of the 1800s, the South End has gone through many changes over the years. It was created as a suburban neighborhood for the upper-middle class. In the 1900s, it became a haven for cultural diversity, emigration and women’s rights. Enigmatically, it has also been an urban wasteland, a hotbed of crime and a mecca for artists. Now, it's some of the most expensive real estate in the country.
