Salem, Massachusetts

The Witch House of Salem

The only structure left with direct ties to the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692 

Edit Place

The Salem witchcraft trials took place between February 1692 and May 1693. 185 were accused, 59 were tried, 31 were found guilty, and 19 were executed. Those final unfortunates were hanged, and one man was crushed to death while being tortured.

Among the judges who convicted the witches (based on "spectral evidence," evidence based upon dreams or visions) was Jonathan Corwin. 

Know Before You Go

If your visiting Salem During SOWEN or better known as Halloween or anytime in the month of October! Yes--- even during the week, get there early because one does not simply get a parking space for any length of time--unless your a practitioner of the Dark arts!!
