History

Stop by for the history alone and to really understand how this effected people in this town. So sad that these people were killed for no reason.

Those that put this memorial together, did an excellent job. A lot of thought went into it. Our tour guide added a great deal of information that made me appreciate this memorial even more if I had just viewed it myself.

We had limited time in Salem. After breakfast we walked down the street to the Memorial. It is very interesting and well maintained.

It was a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. The museum had a small play and even smaller dungeon exhibit.

We visited the cemetery after dark and I knew the memorials were nearby but it was hard to find at night (a woman I didnt know even asked if I knew where they were because she had been looking in vain). They are just stone benches sticking out of a wall but after learning about Salem history, it's interesting to... More

This memorial is next to the cemetery, but we wouldn't have missed it (not realizing what it was), had we not learned of it on our tour. There were flowers from distant relatives and that was really interesting.

Salem Is a must see for anyone who enjoys Halloween. The entire city is dedicated to showing you a unique and scary time.

Sad when you learn the reason for the trials and that the basis behind it was greed or revenge. Very interesting and the tombstones marking the burials of all who were tried and convicted are all there.

This is an excellent add-on to a visit to the Witch History Museum in Salem, or maybe, more appropriately and more respectfully, the Witch History Museum is an excellent add-on to this memorial. The Witch History Museum describes, this memorial remembers. It is sad to think that prior to 1992 there were few ways, other than to read or watch... More

It was great to get the chance to walk around and see all the names and dates. Very respectful memorial. Seeing one of the oldest cemetery's in the country next to it was very neat as well. I've never seen tombstones that old.
