Wonderful old house

Very interesting house. It is much larger then I anticipated and you can go upstairs too. They really do a good job of showing you how the Proctor family lived. They also give you... read more

I visited this attraction on a Saturday afternoon in July. The house is small (about 6-7 rooms total) and you enter and exit through the gift shop, which is on the ground floor. It's the home of the judge who presided over the Salem Witch Trials and so it focuses on his family life, with exhibits of the family's bedrooms,... More

It was nice to see where the pre trials were held but really not worth the fee to see the inside of the house. There is a lot more things to see that are a lot less money

Very interesting house. It is much larger then I anticipated and you can go upstairs too. They really do a good job of showing you how the Proctor family lived. They also give you history of witches and witch trial information from that time period.

A glimpse of what a well to do family would live in during that time. Nicely preserved house, entrance and exit need to be set up better, crowded and warm .Amazing that multigenerational families and servants could live and do in these small spaces.

The so called 'Witch House' was the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin who presided over the Salem Witch Trials. It is said to be the only structure in Salem with direct links to the trials. Whilst I think it has an overpriced entrance fee at $8.50 for adults, I was happy to pay it to see this home continue to... More

Stopped by the house a few weeks back on our way to Boston. The tour of the house is a bit expensive and the house itself is rather cramped. Having said that walking round the floors looking at bedrooms 17th century furniture and fixtures and reviewing the parched documents was very educational. I just wish we had spent more time...

While I am glad that I visited this site...I could have gone without. Yes, this is the only known location that is still standing that had something to do with the Witch trials. It really did not have much content to support this. It was more focused on the family that once lived in the house. It is a great... More

Interesting house restored with some modern conveniences (A/C). Small gift shop at the entrance. Not a guided tour, but guides are available to answer questions.

The fireplaces in the house were absolutely beautiful as was the furniture. Had a lot of interesting displays and history. Probably wouldn't go in again, once was enough.
