The events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 have left a lasting impression on our society today. This combination ticket offers you a chance to time travel to 1692.
Your visit to the Salem Witch Museum is where you will hear about the events leading to the accusations, trials and death of 20 victims of the Salem Witch Trials. The exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, examines the changing interpretations of the word witch over time while also looking at the stereotype, the practice of witchcraft today and most importantly the phenomenon of witch hunting.
The Witch House is Salem's only historic site with direct ties to the Witchcraft Hysteria. The home of witchcraft trials Judge Jonathan Corwin welcomes you to the 17th century...here you will discover exhibits on colonial superstitions and remedies. These strange and often shocking remnants from our past provide a fascinating lens through which to view Salem's early inhabitants and enhance our very understanding of the tragedy of 1692. The Salem Witch Trial Memorial serves as a tribute to the victims of the witch trials and a reminder that among all people and nations a spirit of tolerance and understanding should prevail.
A 20 minute drive from Salem...
Danvers formerly known as Salem Village is where you will find the Rebecca Nurse Homestead, the only home of a person executed during the witch trials open to the public. Experience life in rural Salem Village on 27 beautiful acres! Here you will find a replica of the Salem Village Meeting House, where many examinations were held, and the family cemetery. George Jacobs, the only victim hanged whose remains were later located, was re-buried here in 1992.
Visit the Foundations of the 1692 Parsonage where the hysteria began. It was here, in the home of the Reverend Samuel Parris and his wife, Elizabeth, that the circle of girls met in the winter months of 1691-92 to listen to Tituba's tales of magic and the occult.
The Salem Village Witchcraft Victims' Memorial of Danvers was the first such Memorial to honor all of the 1692 witchcraft victims, and is located across the street from the site of the original Salem Village Meeting House where many of the witch examinations took place. The Memorial serves as a reminder that each generation must confront intolerance and "witch hunts" with integrity, clear vision and courage.
