If there is one structure in Salem that has a direct connection to the Salem Witch Trails of 1692, it is 'The Witch House'. Once home to the judge Jonathan Corwin who presided the Witch trails, the Witch House is now a historic landmark and is an important tourist attraction. Standing as a significant example of the beauty of the 17-th century New England architecture, the Witch House underwent restorations along the years and provides a fascinating insight into the history of Salem and a detailed information on the tragic event of 1692.

  • Great site to see if you are in Salem. It is in the only structure/house still standing with direct ties to the Salem Witch trials. There are some great displays throughout the house and all are explained with in-depth history. They have a cute gift shop as well. It is a small place, so it can get kind of crowded when you're trying to take your time to see and read everything, but definitely worth the visit.

  • Very cool! Awesome to see actual artifacts from that time and walk the house and see the rooms and set up. Would have been better to have a tour guide or someone explaining what things are they had people in there telling you where to start and end but could have been more informative other then reading little plaques next to things!

  • It is very cool. They do not have a public bathroom and charge a fee to get in. This tour would take maybe 30 minutes if you really looked at everything. The door I'm standing in front of is not the entrance, the entrance is around back but they have signs to make it easy there is also a gift shop located inside.

  • Oldest standing structure from the witch trials era. No guided tours, but the signage, items, and house tell the story. Definately fascinating and creepy. Went in mid October. There was a line to get into the house and it was a bit crowded. Parking was reasonable. Wait time reasonable. Customer service was reasonable. The 5 star review is for the unique and unmatched atmosphere. For $10.50, you can have a historical and first hand look at this haunting era.

  • A real glimpse into the past! Super cool knowing its the only building left with direct ties to the trials! The self guided tour is only $8.25 and a guided tour for only $2 more. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
