Salem is a great city to spend the day seeing so much history and most within walking distance. Don't miss it!

This is a very moving memorial to the 20 people who were put to death as witches. On the Hocus Pocus tour, the guide explains how the memorial was laid out and the symbolism of the different aspects of the memorial.

we visited it at night so it had a somber overtone. the weather was a bit windy but that added to the spookiness of the tour.

Moving memorial to the victims of the Witch trials situated outside the old burrying grounds. The red line painted in the pathway will guide you to the memorial with ease and it's worth spending a few minutes pondering and reflecting.

A quiet place to ponder the impact of the hysteria of 1692. Are the stones meant to be benches, a place to sit and think?
