The Joshua Ward House is located at 148 Washington Street in Salem, Massachusetts.

The Joshua Ward house is one of the most haunted houses in America. It was the home of Joshua Ward, a wealthy sea captain. Most believe the house is haunted by George Corwin, the High Sheriff during the witch trails...the Joshua Ward House was built on the foundation of his old house, and for many years Corwin was buried in the basement. His body was eventually moved to the Broad Street Cemetery, but many believe his spirit still lingers around the house. All sorts of strange things have happened there - objects have moved on their own, candles have been removed from their holders and bent into "s" shapes, and the security alarm once went off over sixty times in two years. People who have worked in the building over the years have also seen a ghostly woman roaming the floors.
