Get a taste of the Dark Side of Boston during this virtual preview of our popular, original tour through tales of misery, misfortune, malevolence and murder - all true historical events that have occurred in Boston. Fact is often stranger than fiction!

The Dark Side includes many dark and disturbing stories not often shared with tourists. In the Halloween spirit, our Dark Side preview will explore the danger lurking in the daily lives of Bostonians throughout history. You will learn about the lesser known dastardly deeds of Colonial celebrities, the grim realities of early medical practice in the Ivy League, and delve into the scandalous details of a grisly crime that riveted audiences around the world in the 19th century and echoed for years to come.
