History of the Mercy Tavern

As you may know, Salem is a port city and due to this fact, many nautical stories have emerged – like ones with pirates. Not long after the well-known Salem Witch Trials in 1692, visiting sailors began undertaking illicit activities inside Salem’s taverns. One of these was Mercy Tavern (formally In a Pig’s Eye). The pirates even used the tunnels beneath the Tavern to smuggle goods and kidnap women. To this day, there are rumors that the pirates’ spirits can still be spotted lurking throughout the building.
