Seán, Guide from Witch City Walking Tours

Prior to joining Witch City Walking Tours, Seán worked at historic sites all over, from California to Northern England. In addition to touring around Salem, Seán teaches social history and writing at UMass Lowell and holds a Master’s degree in 18th Century Studies from the University of York, England.⠀
His favorite location in Salem is Pamplemousse. What he loves the most about being a guide is “watching our guests realize that history is fun and relevant.”⠀

Angelica and Eric, owners of Odd Meter Coffee
“Hi hi! We are Angelica and Eric of Odd Meter Coffee. We opened our cozy, vibrant little spot in downtown Salem, MA, so we can celebrate our fellow humans and make delicious coffee.⠀
Besides loving people and coffee, we believe there’s no point of being in business if we can’t have a positive impact on the world around us, so we’ve built a lot of our values into it. Success for us is about way more than profits. It’s about how much we can increase inclusivity and economic justice, reduce our impact on our beloved earth, and really connect with the people in our community.⠀ We hope you’ll stop by and say hi!”⠀
Visit Angelica and Eric at Odd Meter at 60 Washington Street in #SalemMA or place your order online.⠀
