Have you heard the story about the little boy who haunt the Autitorium? He grew up with us? Four doors down from me. He fell from the cat walks to the seating while playing one day. His name is Carly Oulette. He was about 7-8 years old. He suppose to haunt the place now since it happen so suddona nd traggicly. He was a sweet boy full of hell. A red headed freckle faced kid. He came from a large family. It really devestated out neighbourhood for a long time that a child that young could die so suddonly. I want to say it happen in the late 60's. It was a very long time ago. My dad was still alive.

A very eerie photo essay of the interior. I would like to see something of value done to the structure.

Condos?? Curious that is all, as my husband and a group were trying to and were so close to getting funding to restore it as a historical landmark and eventually open to the public when finished as the old Salem Jail. Real story, current City Mayor of Salem, sold it off to developers, not even considering it being funded as an historical landmark. We had been in touch with her several times, not only updating her to save it, but to get some last interior photos of it, and she absolutely would not let us in the door. I witnessed many of her friends/co-workers touring the place (even though she said no one was allowed in there). What a liar and what a thing for her to decide what to do with the Salem Jail when everyone else in the community wants to keep it as a historical landmark, and the funding for all of this was right in place. Lol, guess a real witch is in charge of Salem, MA.

And yes, Duke, If I could have got in there that night or any other night, I would have been in there... There is so much history in that building I can't believe what they are doing to it.
I think the building some may be confusing is the Old Salem Police Station, just a a few feet from the Old Burial Point, also a very old building with alot of history within it's walls... And this was turned into Condo's too... The building shell is still there, just condos on the inside now...
I was born and grew up in Salem, and let me tell you, some of the stuff taught in the scholos about Salem were wrong... LMAO... but even school books are a judment call... it's all how you see it... You can have a room full of people in one place, give them info and ask each one what they got and you'll hear things you didn't even heard mentioned in the original message... It's all part of life and our own views.
I've been out of Salem for almost a year now, I got an e mail telling me that The Old Salem Jail was gonna be condo's... In my opinion... all those meeting helt to see what would be done ws nothing more than the city going through the motions... They knew all along what they were gonna do with it any ways...
As far as it being a theme resteraunt... I still think that was a great idea and a museum as well... Salem does have reseraunts, but nothing that special... believe me...

I have to agree with you about the school books. I lived in Beverly from 1987 until 1992. We neve really touched upon the witch trials or anything related to it. The teachers figured we lived right there we should know enough already. When I graduated from Beverly High School I realized that even though I did live right there I hardly knew anything. Only on my own have I learned what I have. I remember walking past the Parker Brothers building and having the jail be right there and still open at the time. Hearing the inmates yell out the windows was a creepy thing to a teenage girl. The cemetery was a place I always wanted to visit (in the daylight-I'm a chicken) but the jail was open so I couldn't. Now that I am in Florida I plan on sometime soon taking my kids up there to where I lived and show them what they won't learn in school and places that their mother used to roam as a teen.
