What you'll do

Salem is a beautiful city best known for its tragic 1692 'Witch' Trials. Our walk will focus on the history, legends, and curses from the Witch Hysteria of 1692. We will visit several locations of importance during that time, ending at the Witch Trials Memorial that pays respect to the 20 executed victims. If you'd like a full history tour of Salem, I also lead a tour called Explore Salem with a Local. The dates and times of my tours may be flexible to fit your travel plans, so feel free to drop me a note. Night tours are booked by request.
