  • You really should take a tour to learn more about the history of the trials. There are allot to choose from. Some scary and some more story history type.

  • Those that put this memorial together, did an excellent job. A lot of thought went into it. Our tour guide added a great deal of information that made me appreciate this memorial even more if I had ju...  more »

  • Pretty small, humbling place in quite good shape and certainly quite interesting and quite decently accessable for kids.
  • The best place for a "true horror" experience
  • It's a pretty plain historical type setting with the names of the "witches" killed carved into the cement benches. But, it was an interesting atmosphere. I liked that people left "offerings" for the dead.
  • The memorial is a touching place to honor those killed during the witch trials. Check out the small stone walled section, each bench has the name of each victim and his they were killed. It really cements the reality of the ordeal.
  • Great piece of history, could be preserved better but is remarkable that it's in as good shape as it is. Humbling!
