Witch House is the only original building in the city with a direct connection to the 1692 Salem witch trials. Once the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin, the houses stayed in his family until the mid-19th century. Legend has it that the judge presided on the jury that condemned 19 innocent people to death during the witch trials, but--contrary to popular belief--none of the accused was ever brought to his home. The house and its museum serve as a rare example of 17th-century architecture in the United States.

  • Loved going thru the home and seeing all the original features such as the huge fireplaces and rough ceiling beams. You even get to go upstairs and see most of the house. Gives you a feel of life...

  • We really liked it but didn't get to go inside because we had to buy tickets in advance online. But that's OK we'll definitely be back. Such an amazing place with wonderful people and a lot of history.
  • Decently priced. FYI make an appointment a day or two prior they fill up fast. Staff was friendly and informative. It’s about a 10-15 min self guided tour.
