Ghost Hunters

“Ghost Hunters is an American paranormal reality television series that premiered on October 6, 2004, on Syfy (previously the Sci Fi Channel). The program features paranormal investigators Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, who investigate places that are reported to be haunted. The two originally worked as plumbers for Roto-Rooter as a day job while investigating locations at night. In June 2016, Jason Hawes announced that Ghost Hunters would be ending their relationship with the SyFy channel at the conclusion of its eleventh season, which aired later that year.” – Ghost Hunters

I made it to Warrick Rhode Island and thought I would drive by the Ghost Hunters shop to see if they were still around. Unfortunately it looks like they closed up shop and haven’t been there for awhile. It was located right next door to a Tattoo shop which I never recall seeing on TV? Maybe there was a reason lol. At any rate I was in the right place but wrong time.

The Witch House

“The Jonathan Corwin House in Salem, Massachusetts, USA, known as The Witch House, was the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin (1640–1718) and is the only structure still standing in Salem with direct ties to the Salem witch trials of 1692, thought to be built between 1620 and 1642. It was bought by Judge Corwin in 1675, when he was 35 years old, and he lived there for more than forty years. Corwin is buried in the nearby Broad Street Cemetery. The house remained in the Corwin family until the mid-19th century. It is located at 310 Essex Street, at the cross streets of North Street and Summer Street in the McIntire Historic District in Salem, Massachusetts” – The Witch House

Took a tour of the Witch House when I was in Salem, MA. Parking is a little hard to find but once you do it is easy access to the Witch House. The price is between $8-$10 and is self guided. They do offer guided tours for a little more. This is about 2-3 miles from the Salem Witch Trial memorial downtown. I really suggest taking a walk through “The Burying Point Cemetery”. It is really neat and creepy at the same time to see the tombstones.

Toy Shack Las Vegas

Me and my son were in Las Vegas last January 2016 and had a chance to take a tour of The Toy Shack owned by Johnny Jimenez. You probably have seen him on Pawn Stars. He was very nice and it was a great photo op for us. The Toy Shack is a store specializing in buying & selling vintage toys, specifically iconic brands of the 1980s.
