“Home of salem witch trials!”

Home of Judge Jonathan Corwin, The Salem Witch House is the only structure still standing in Salem with direct ties to the Witchcraft Trials of 1692.

As a local magistrate and civic leader, Corwin was called upon to investigate the claims of diabolical activity when a surge of witchcraft accusations arose in Salem and neighboring communities.

He served on the Court of Oyer and Terminer, which ultimately sent nineteen to the gallows. All nineteen refused to admit to witchcraft and maintained their innocence.

Not much in the way of witchcraft here but a nice freeze frame of the houses from this time period. The cost of admission was $8 per person and was a strong learning experience.

This was a nice little museum to visit, if only to get a taste of 17th Century life. The price of admission was reasonable, and there was a lot of information available to read. Even with all of the reading, it is a quick walk-through, but well worth a visit.

More historical than witchcraft. Very small. Glad to say I've seen it but don't expect much.
