If you are visiting Salem, you owe it to the people who were persecuted in 1692 to visit this site. I never realized how much symbolism was built into this memorial until our guide from the Crow's Corner tour told us about it.

While the 19 annihilated souls were NOT laid to rest on this site, the memorial is more poignant and moving that the memorial recently placed at the site of the hangings. Well worth the visit

Very meaningful memorial for the poor, innocent victims of the Salem Witch Hunt tragedy. Peaceful setting. Remember to bring flowers and read the quotes taken from court transcripts carved into the stone on the ground as you enter the memorial.

The park is very, very small. You would not let your dog go loose and you can have a dog.

There are no hours. It is open 24/7 and no admission is required. Although the area that it is in can get very crowded in October.

You can walk to the benches for free, and through the old cemetery, but you should not sit on the benches, or walk over any of the graves/stand on them.
