So many young people buried in the cematary. We noticed at least 3 generals. as well. It's a shame that the area is not paid more respect. There were trash cans availalble, but, some people just don't care. Otherwise, a very interesting visit.

The memorial is simple...not real easy to find. But it’s nice. It gave me an opportunity to talk to my girls about the dangers of mob rule and how emotions can get in the way of justice.

It’s a nice memorial for a sad part of history. It’s right next to the The Burying Point cemetery so you can visit both at the same time. There really isn’t parking for this specifically so there’s a little walk but it’s easy. This was...More

I found this area very peaceful and insightful. I didn't know how many people had been executed through these trials and that several of them were men.

Well preserved area. Having went to a museum to hear the stories this area nicely followed it up for us as the names were familiar. Worth a visit if in salem.

I found it more appropriate and educational to visit this memorial than museums in the area. This memorial is right next to a cemetery which is another beautiful place to stop by in Salem.

I think without a walking tour this would not have the same impact as with one. We took hocus pocus tours, which we thought were great and this allowed us to truly appreciate the significance behind this memorial.

Sitting on the side of the grave yard this site, though not the actual resting place, provides a memorial for the wrongly accused, convicted, and put to death residents of the Salem area. The actual resting grounds are only a few miles away but this...More
