Checked this out after the witch dungeon tour. Kinda makes more sense once you know the story behind a few of the names. Stroll the graveyard next to it and you will see some familiar names on the markers.

The memorial at the site of the activities is interesting for a brief walk without being surrounded by mediocre shops. Really wish the City of Salem would spend a few dollars to better maintain the yard and set up a few explanatory signs.

An authentic site in Salem. Lots of familiar names from The Crucible. And a poignant dedication from Elie Wiesel.

Hi, I think you talk about the external Witch Trials Memorials. Dog are permitted in the Trials Memorials and there are seats. Now, if you talk about the Museum, dogs are not allowed. Seats (mainly benches) are... More
