Excellent knowledge of the events leading up to the Salem witch trials. Quiet setting, much different than the commercialism of the city of Salem. If you want a true bit of history of the trials without the hype, this is the place to go.

Guided tour of house and grounds of an accused witch back in 1692. An especially historic visit for us, relatives of Rebecca. A well restored home, cemetery on premises.
