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

Like the old furnishings; however, would have preferred more of a historic context. It was just a walk through attraction with very little context as to the witch trials.

Seems very authentic. Scott was very knowledgeable and energetic. Goos to sorta study a tad ahead of time if you can. Even if it weren't for Salem events this would still be a pretty cool historic house. On a Sunday in December there is easy parking near by at least in the morning. Walking distance to a lot of other... More

An interesting look round this house. The guy on the door wasn't the most welcoming but another guy inside was chatting animatedly to some other guests and happily imparting knowledge about the house and it's inhabitants.

I noticed that another reviewer said that the phone message said this place was open, yet when they got there it was closed. We had the opposite issue. We had called ahead of time and the phone message said that it would be closed when we would be there. But once we got to town, we noticed that it was... More

It only takes about 20 minutes to go through the house, but it's well worth the visit. It was interesting to see how people lived in that time period. It was owned by by one of the judges from the Salem witch trial, which added to my curiosity.
