Morning Glory B&B Ghost Stories

Submitted by ‘Rebecca’ March 2009

My husband and I spent two nights at the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast in March, 2009, while we were in the area for job interviews. Not only did I experience the charm and charisma of Bob and his house, but I also experienced one of Bob’s friendly resident ghosts. I am a clairvoyant medium; I can see, hear and communicate with those who have passed and have done so since I was a child. There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t see or hear from someone on the “other side”, but it never ceases to amaze me when I experience each paranormal phenomenon. When we are on travel, I sometimes conduct some quick research on the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast of which we have reservations to see if there are any known ghost stories. Usually I prefer not to know the details so I can prove to myself the ghosts I come in contact with, and I look at it as a way to hone my abilities. I did look up ghost stories of the Morning Glory online quickly but at that time found nothing on the house.

We arrived in the late afternoon, and after a few moments of conversation and introductions, Bob showed my husband and me to our room. Not five minutes after Bob left us to settle in, the ghost of a young woman, aged approximately 17-20 manifested directly in front of me. She was dressed in a long gown from the late 1800s, early 1900s. It was white, trimmed in royal or dark blue. She had very light brown or dark blonde hair, pulled back off her face but it cascaded over her shoulders. She smiled, and I turned to my husband saying “That didn’t take long”. The young woman lingered for a moment, smiling at me and then slightly nodded to us, as if she welcomed us into her home, and then disappeared. I described her to my husband and we discussed how neither of us knew of any ghost stories about the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast. Then again, in Salem, one would assume it’s hard to find a building that doesn’t have some impressions left from the past!

As I unpacked, my husband went to check his E-mail at the guest computer in the shared living area of the second floor. He returned with a soft-cover book in hand and said “Look what I found”. He opened the book to a ghost story written about the Morning Glory by an author who visited the house before, and surprisingly the story mentioned the ghost of a 17-year old girl who continues to live on in the house. As an adult, growing up with my abilities has changed my view of “ghosts”, and after years of travel, research, documentation and writing about haunted locations and ghosts from around the world, I have come to easily sense those who are friendly and welcoming, and those who prefer to leave a negative impact on the living.

Bob’s ghosts are sincere, friendly and welcoming. I sensed other friendly yet lively spirits in the house, though they did not manifest for me to see them during our visit. The specters add even more character to the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast, and chances are, most visitors will be lucky enough to experience the friendly ghosts, whether you hear them, see them or literally feel them. Just remember, the young woman and the children who “reside” in the Morning Glory Bed and Breakfast are benevolent, providing a warm hospitable place for you and your family to rest, relax and enjoy the company of Bob within the historical, yet remarkable surroundings of Salem, MA.
