Danvers is really where the witch hysteria went down (formerly known as Salem Village, as opposed to Salem Town, now Salem). They play down the "witch" tourism, but did put up this memorial. It's a memorial not only to those killed (like Salem's), but to ALL the victims, including those who died while in prison and who were arrested and... More

After traveling to the Rebecca Nurse Homestead, we were told of this memorial which is only about a mile or so away. Without a tour, an expert in the field, or a good amount of background knowledge, its tough to get the full story (as one of the previous reviewers mentioned). Check for any witch tours that include this site... More

nice easy walk, part of the "red line" self walking tour in old Salem. But upon visiting, there is no real info on the women and man who were killed in the area. I stood near a walking tour and learned alot about these folks. But reading the names of the "witches" does add a dose of reality to the... More

This is a lovely memorial to those innocent people murdered in the witch hysteria, but nothing but a plaque to read and a place to sit.

This is a beautifully designed and laid out memorial. It packs a lot of fact and emotion in a small space. The dates of the peopled hung, pressed, and not often seen, who died in jail, are given. The easy to understand historical listing of the deaths makes it easy to suddenly realize, with a shock,that one of the hung... More

This memorial was very interesting. There is a stone block for each person tried and hung or crushed for being accused of being a witch. Such a sad time to be alive. It is a very reverent place. It is right next to the historical cemetery in Salem. The memorial is easy to find right in the center of activity... More

This is well worth a visit. Very informative and the entrance fee is very reasonable. There is a gift shop on site as well.

It's a small but moving monument to the innocents. Definitely worth the stop. Will only take 10 or 15 min to read over and very close to the Rebecca Nurse Homestead.

I love this memorial…. That nobody except hardcore people interested in the trials would know about or find. I do realize the importance of it being where it is but there needs to be another one in the heart of Salem town to honor those who died.

Thank Joseph L
