About Beth O'Grady

In early 2018, I walked away from my newspaper career in search of a more simple, happier life. In 2019 I founded a walking tour company in my hometown called Salem Haunts, with a portion of all proceeds donated to local charities, including the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem and the Stephen M. O’Grady Foundation, in memory of my brother ( There are many tours to choose from in Salem, but not many hosted by someone who grew up here. I specialize in smaller tours which is more enjoyable for all. This allows us to get to know each other better and see more sites. If you want a theatrical performance in costume, this is not the tour for you. But if you want a perspective on our city from someone who has lived here her entire life, I’m happy to help you explore my hometown. I would describe my storytelling style as casual and open for conversation. I give proper respect where needed, and add lightness when possible.
