We are history lovers...so this was a must-see for us. It did not disappoint. Knowing that this is the only surviving structure from the actual witch trials was fascinating. If these walls could talk!

Definitely worth touring as it is the oldest building still standing with ties to the witch trials, even though no witches lived here - the judge that presided over the trials did.

Spent an hour wandering round this house, belonged to the witch magistrate not an actual witch , but close. Cheap entrance fee, go very early to avoid any crowds as it is effectively someones house and not too big. recommend a visit though

We learned more about this house from a walking tour (Hauntings and History of Salem) than from the tour itself. We understood that there wouldn’t be a guide. However, it really would have helped the tour experience. There was a staff member texting on her...More

Good example of a 17th century house of a wealthy person, a judge. Not very full, but enough to get a feel. Not much to read as a soft-guided tour. A bit expensive giving the very small size (8.25$) and limited exposition. Prepare for a...More

This is a good self-guided house tour to give you an idea about the houses in the 1600's in Salem. It was owned by one of the judges during he Witch Trials - that is it's only connection to witches. We enjoyed looking around and...More
