The Witch House/Corwin House, Salem
Categories: History Museums, Museums
The Witch House/Corwin House is the only original building in the city with a direct connection to the 1692 Salem witch trials. Once the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin, the houses stayed in his family until the mid-19th century. Legend has it that the judge presided on the jury that condemned 19 innocent people to death during the witch trials, but--contrary to popular belief--none of the accused was ever brought to his home. The house and its museum serve as a rare example of 17th-century architecture in the United States.
