10) Salem, MA
SalemDuring the winter of 1691 and 1692, two young girls (9-year-old Betty Parris and 11-year-old Abigail Williams) started acting strangely after practicing magic in the woods with a West Indian slave named Tituba. This spurred a fever of hysteria in the tiny New England village of Salem. Ultimately, 19 convicted witches were hanged, and one was pressed to death. Rumor has it that the ghosts of the people who lost their lives still haunt the town.
