“Respectful”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The memorial itself was a peaceful and respectful way of remembering what was exactly the opposite. Take the time to walk through the adjoining cemetary, it's worth a stroll and a look at the headstones.

“Quick”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

This is a fun stop if you're visiting Salem. Theres not enough to look at to carve out a whole day or even a whole hour but it is worth seeing. The benches lining the walkway are all dedicated to someone hung during the witch hysteria. Its nice to take one of the walking tours through it because they will give more detailed information. Also cool that its so walkable, close by other attractions and free.

“Just average!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

I went to the memorial on a Sunday morning about 9:00 which was great. I had the park to myself. But there really is not much to see. It is a small wall park, with a bench for each victim of the witch trials. I found the old Salem cemetery right next to it to be far more enjoyable to walk though. Seeing some of the very old tombstones are interesting. I would only go just to kill a little time.

“Contemplative space”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Seeing the names, dates, and manner of death of each victim of the tragic 'witch trials' of Salem made it so much more real to me and our group of students. The NPS Ranger, John, provided a wealth of information and perspective to consider.
