In the last couple of weeks I have continued helping out and learning new things at the museum. I have gotten the chance to do some research and even accession and archive a few things. The biggest and most consuming thing, however, that has been going on recently has been the museum’s annual Ghost Walk. Every year a number of volunteer actors dress up as historical “ghosts” from various points in Salem’s past and people are able to experience these “ghosts” through tours that take place in the museum and mostly in East Hill Cemetery. I didn’t just get to help set up for the Ghost Walk this year, I actually dressed up with some friends to become a “ghost” myself. My friends and I were three World War One soldiers from Salem dressed up in appropriate costumes. I was lucky enough to get to have an actual helmet from the war as well. This was a really awesome opportunity for me as I had never really been involved in reenactments or things of that kind and so this was a new and interesting experience.
