This small colonial house has been preserved and converted into a museum which tells the story of the Salem Witch Trials through the context of one family's story. This home once belonged to a judge involved with the trials. The home has five rooms full of period furniture and household items. Written information tells the story of the witch trials,... More

A must see in Salem, truly unreal the things that happened in our country during those times. Thankfully we have come a long way. Great factual history that will blow your mind.

It is a very well preserved house of the era, but not well represented as the Witch House. It was owned by one of the Judges at the trail, and had no real part in the Trial.

Its an actual home from the witch trials. The museum has extremely friendly staff that will answer all your questions. Enjoyed the stories and there is a great little shop for trinkets after the self guided tour.

The moment we walked in, I instantly had vibes in this home! It has been preserved so well, and, getting to walk in the home and see where the children were bore upstairs, etc. was just so incredible!!! The stairs in this house are very narrow and don't feel all that supportive so if you have weak knees, etc. I... More

You have to understand a bit about Jonathan Corwin's role in the Salem Witch hysteria of 1692 to get the real point of this house. If not then it's just a cool remnant of colonial America. Corwin was a wealthy Massachusetts merchant who served as one of the investigators and judges during the Witch trials. His home is the last... More

We were waiting for more! I read all the history and came to the house with full of expectations! In fact it is a house with some not professional signs made in home printer and tapes! 2 bedrooms and 2 rooms! Nothing special! Not so many things inside. We made the tour in 5 mins and we paid almost 10$... More

We would not have visited if our goddaughter hadn't been covering this in her history class. The history of the building, combined with the knowledge of our guide, made this a truly memorable visit. The hidden stairwell was amazing, but just to see (and hear) how the immigrants had lived and celebrated Xmas (eventually) was fascinating. Well worth taking time... More
