Beautiful memorial

This is a somewhat quiet spot but very beautiful and nicely done to help memorialize all the victims of the Salem witch trials.

This is a beautiful memorial and is certainly worth a visit on its own but we visited as part of the Bewitched After Dark tour and it was fabulous. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and told the story of each of the individuals memorialized. Without a guide we would not have learned the stories of the twenty people who were... More

This is a very well thought out memorial with a somber undertone, as expected. It is worth a visit in the day and at night.

The memorial area and gravesites are well maintained and beautiful. Serene and nice place for reflection and being surrounded by history. This area is CLOSED from dusk-dawn per state law, so make sure to visit during daylight hours. Rubbings and etchings are also prohibited, but photos are ok.

A very nice, contemplative memorial that was a refreshing break from some of the gimmicky "haunted" and "witchy" attractions in town.

A very quiet and solemn place to reflect the tragic events of the past. Great memorial to those unfortunate souls that were wrongly accused.

A beautiful memorial dedicated to those who were innocently killed for simply deviating from what 1692 society deemed as normal. Sad but beautiful all at the same time.

This is a small little square area used as a memorial for the individuals who lost their lives during the Salem witch trials in 1692. Note: It is FREE to walk into the memorial and spend all the time you want. You do NOT have to pay for a tour to go here! We found a parallel parking spot (free)... More

Moving last words carved into the pathway; don't walk by and miss it the first time as we did. The memorial is a small area of grass land with stones forming a perimeter. Easy to miss.
