This is the only home of a person executed during the Salem Village Witchcraft Hysteria of 1692 open to the public. Another unique feature is a reproduction of the 1672 Salem Village Meeting House where many of the early hearings surrounding the Salem Witchcraft Hysteria took place. Located on the grounds is the Nurse Family Cemetery. It has been a longstanding family tradition that Rebecca's son and husband retrieved her body after her execution and secretly buried it here. A monument with a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier was erected years later to commemorate this. Recently another victim of the Hysteria, George Jacobs, was buried here after being found in the middle of the last century on his former property in a lone unmarked grave. This is the only known burial site of anyone convicted of witchcraft during the Salem trials. Open seasonally May-November Saturday & Sunday 10-3 July & August extended summer hours Wednesday-Sunday 10-3 October extended hours Friday-Sunday 10-3 The Rebecca Nurse Homestead is a private non-profit museum owned by the Danvers Alarm List Coy.
