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 (www.stephenogrady.com). 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.
