It took a long time to get this memorial recognized and erected but now that it has been, it is well worth a visit. Too many innocent people lost to religious frenzy. Salem is a stark reminder of that.

It is a thought provoking site well worth visiting. Ken Brown of the Boston 5 was the chief fund raiser for this monument. It is the most complete monument to the accused. Well worth seeing if your a history buff.

We have a relative who was tried and executed. She is listed on the memorial. The grounds are well cared for and there is no cost
