  • Beautiful place
  • This is a surprisingly beautiful and touching memorial. I love it that people still leave flowers and other trinkets behind. It was a very somber 10 minutes during an otherwise fantastic trip to Salem.
  • a beautiful dedication to the horrific events that took place! I love how well kept this always is!! A wonderful memorial!
  • We visited as part of a walking tour, not usually my thing, but most excellent. The information provided gave us wonderful context on how this dark period of history has been appreciated and owned as it were, kudos to the city of Salem for not avoiding this
  • Probably the most important spot you'd travel to in Salem, commemorating 19 victims of the witch trials of 1692. They don't count all 25 casualties however, by not including those who died in prison awaiting their trials.
