Historic and Probably Haunted John Proctor House Up for Sale
If the name 'John Proctor' doesn't ring a bell, you should brush up on your Salem Witch Trial history ASAP.
John Proctor is most famously known for being one of the men who was tried and hanged after being accused of practicing witchcraft in Salem in the 1600's. The accusations against Proctor actually started with his thrid wife, Elizabeth, and when Proctor defended his wife, he was assumed guilty as well.After his trial, Proctor was hanged and his entire farmstead and all his family's belongings were taken from his children.
The house the Proctor's lived in Peabody has been put on the market for just over a half a million dollars. It is currently listed at $600,000 and measures right around 4,000 square feet. The six bedroom, two bath home was built in 1638 and is a registered historic home. The house has been beautifully restored and even has an in-ground pool in the backyard. Also, almost every room has a big fireplace.
However, given the age of the home and the history of the people who have lived here, our resident Spooky SouthCoast expert says there is reason to believe it could be home to some ghosts as well.
