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

This is one of the places one just needs to visit, but it really isn't all that spectacular. The names of those executed in 1692 are inscribed in marble, there are a lot of famous quotes, and it is a pretty setting, but it isn't worth more than a couple minutes. The one thing that bugged me the most, is... More

We had a great time learning about the witch mania that swept through Salem in those years. It was worth the money!!

I visited Salem in July 2013. I have read many books about the Salem Witch Trial, and knew that I had to see this. It is a somber memorial as it has the names of those who were murdered for greed by their neighbors. Thankful the accused who declared innocent in 2000.

This is a small memorial in the place where it all began. You can see a list of names and learn a little about what happened. It won't take more than 10 to 15 minutes to see it all, and then you can go to the Rebecca Nurse House a short distance away. Definitely worth seeing.

This memorial is well done and well kept, really heart breaking when you think of what happened and what a sad time in history this really was. The many innocents who were wrongfully accused and tortured. The memorial is across the street from where they were publicly accused; the original site of the Salem Village Meeting House, where most of... More

Some may wonder why the Witchcraft Victims Memorial is in Danvers rather than Salem, given that Salem usually comes to mind when thinking of the witchcraft hysteria of 1692. The explanation is that Danvers was once a part of Salem known as Salem Village, and the first accusations of witchcraft were made by young girls living in Salem Village. Later,... More

You don't hear too much about this place. It's pretty cool and not a crowded tourist area. Only a few minutes from Nurse Homestead
