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.

After visiting the memorial in Salem it was very interesting making the trip up to Danvers to see their memorial. They are definitely different. This is more of a monument than the one in Salem. The names of all those executed are inscribed onto the granite slabs that sit behind an altar-like statue. I would recommend combining this memorial with... More

I will preface with I am a descendant of Rebecca Nurse, one of those unjustly accused. As such I was impressed and moved by the memorial. Having the stone "benches" out of the wall and it being a quiet end of the street to reflect on what these brave souls went through was perfect. Parking could be a challenge so... More

It is important that memorials exist but they are not entertaining nor meant to be. While standing here a passerby stopped and told me about all of the local sites that I needed to see. This made my visit to the memorial worthwhile. If you are in the area you should stop to contemplate what was going through people's minds... More
