This former Navy cruiser is now a museum ship and open to the public. The ship, in one of its duties, served as a hospital after the 1953 Ionian Earthquake, and many spirits from throughout the ship’s service are said to have lingered here. Ghost tours are offered regularly, a paranormal society is said to have its headquarters onboard, and the ship has been made into a haunted house during Halloween. The TV show Ghost Hunters featured the USS Salem on one of its episodes.
