What a Day!

By accident, there I was on September 22 viewing memorials for eight of those hanged on the same day in 1692.

Beautiful Memorial
Sep 2021 • Couples
The memorial is beautiful at night but it is worth seeing regardless of the time of day. A true perspective of the number of victims. We went of the "Bewitched After Dark Walking Tours" with Jeff. He provided a great amount of detail for each victim.

One of the most meaningful things to do in Salem
Sep 2021
We did this on our own and had no regrets. The memorial is a beautiful tribute to the people who were so unfairly persecuted and executed and it serves as a lesson for us today as well. We saw notes on some of the stones from descendants that were quite emotional. This is a must-do, and quite a departure from the shops that are capitalizing on the witch hype.

Beautiful and Significant Memoria
Sep 2021
When visiting, please take a guided tour or purchase a guidebook that points out all of the significant factors associated with the architecture of the memorial. It has so much more significance than just brick wall. The entire memorial is very symbolic and a beautiful memorial to the innocent lives that were treated so tragically during this time in history.

Don’t pay money for this. Just walk around and you’ll see plenty. If you must take full city witch tour to include this site. It is as it looks in pictures.

Don't miss this site when visiting Salem
Aug 2021
This is a moving memorial to the victims of the Salem Witch Craze, and a welcome relief from the more sensationalized and shlocky tie-ins (See: the Salem Witch Museum. Really, don't bother with that one.) Spend some time with each victim, consider the wider damage done by the trials and executions, and recognize that it happened not all that long ago.
