Full description

Learn about the history and descendants of those involved with the Salem Witch Trials. Discover the most important sights in the downtown area and learn about the key people involved in the trials almost 400 years ago.

Visit the Salem Witch Trials Memorial and the Old Burying Point Cemetery, where judges of the trials are buried. Listen to tales about a descendant's role in the American Revolution and the town's legacy as the richest seaport per capita from 1790 to 1812.

Learn about the approximately 200 people accused of witchcraft, along with the 70 victims, nine judges, dozens of jurors, and hundreds of observers who were all involved in the 1692 witch trials.

Hear about other descendants - some famous and some infamous. Many people do not know they're descended from the Salem Witch Trials - perhaps you're one of them.

We learned so much history surrounding the Salem Witch Trial, people who were involved (the accused and the accusers), and some of their famous descendants. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, and we would highly recommend this tour.
