Excellent knowledge of the events leading up to the Salem witch trials. Quiet setting, much different than the commercialism of the city of Salem. If you want a true bit of history of the trials without the hype, this is the place to go.

Guided tour of house and grounds of an accused witch back in 1692. An especially historic visit for us, relatives of Rebecca. A well restored home, cemetery on premises.

We were there for an annual festival, and they had volunteers dressed in costume from the 1920s, when the organization was established to save the homestead. The earliest buildings date from the time of the witch trials and they have some great items

If you are visiting Salem for the witch trials history this is a must do. Good to see the types of houses people would have stayed in It’s a low key attraction but that feels appropriate
