We enjoyed touring this17th Century house and learning interesting facts from the period. We were fascinated by the replicas of historical documents from the witch trial period and recipes for old remedies. it was nice to be able to see the second floor.

You can’t really miss the witch house as you drive into town. It’s a very distinctive house and it’s very well preserved. It’s set up just as it might have been set up back then with tons of facts throughout. As a medical professional I...More

Stopped by on our Hocus Pocus self guided tour. Very cool to see a piece of history still standing. Didn’t spend a lot of time there because we were on a tight schedule but definitely had to make the stop to see.

This house is peculiar and interesting, absolutely worth a visit, but I'd say it has so much more potential than they are "exploiting" today.... The displays are poorly done, and it would've been nice to have the story of the house and the people who...More
