Myths & Misconceptions Walking Tour September 2017
The Salem Witch Trials happened over 300 years ago, and it has been dramatized in books, movies, documentaries, and even TV shows. Over the years it has been presented so many times in so many ways that some of the real history gets lost. This tour seeks to uncover the myths, and debunk any misconceptions you might have about the Salem Witch Trials. This walking tour lasts approximately 1 hour, and travels 1 mile around downtown Salem, including stops at the Old Burying Point Cemetery, Witch Trials Memorial, and the site of the original 17th century jail.
