Amazing that this house still stands from the 1600s. It was considered to be a mansion in its day. Corwin House was instrumental in the entire witch trial history of Salem. There are informational plaques throughout and lots of period furnishings/memorabilia to look at (not...More

This is a neat old house that you walk through on a self guided tour. Interesting facts are scattered throughout the house. Not all info is related to 'witches' so not sure where the name witch house came from. Enjoyable.

This probably is not worth the 8.25 a person, considering we were in and out in about 15 minutes. But it is an original house I beleive.

It's not too big, but it is a lovely house. It won't take you more than 30 minutes to go through it and read the info. It is a little misleading though--this wasn't a home of a suspected witch. This was the home of the...More
