Ropes Mansion in Salem, Mass

On this week’s episode we are continuing the Salem episodes with The Ropes Mansion. It is a gorgeous, two storied, white colonial mansion with cute little gabled windows. Its close to downtown Salem at 318 Essex Street. 

The Ropes Mansion housed 4 generations of Ropes family members that lived and died within it’s walls. It saw happiness and a lot of tragedy, which makes sense why it’s one of Salem’s most haunted house, and it’s not even connected to the Salem Witch Trials. It might look incredibly familiar to those that are fans of the disney cult classic, Hocus Pocus. The Ropes Mansion exterior was used as Allsion’s house. Remember the part when Max and Dani are trick or treating and they get into a fight and she goes and cries in the hay bale and Max has to make her feel better and they are in front of that gorgeous home, yep that one. 

So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.
