The Ropes Mansion is located at 318 Essex Street in Salem, Massachusetts.

The Ropes Mansion is now owned by the Peabody Essex Museum. It was home to Nathaniel and Abigail Ropes. Nathaniel Ropes was a judge during the witch trials. It is a gorgeous mansion, and the gardens behind the house are just as beautiful.

The Ropes Mansion is supposedly haunted by Abigail Ropes. She died in the house when her nightgown caught on fire in the bedroom upstairs. She just walked too close to the fireplace - it wasn't too uncommon for a woman's clothes to catch on fire like this back then. Today some people claim to see her ghostly figure roaming throughout the mansion.
