The Witch Trials Memorial in Salem, MA

Salem Witch Trials Memorial - Salem MA

A yellow flower sat on each of twenty simple granite stones at the Witch Trial Memorial in Salem, Massachusetts. Each was a reminder of the fourteen women and six men who were accused of being witches in 1692 and later tried, convicted, and executed. Designed by Maggie Smith and James Cutler, the monument was inspired by the Vietnam Memorial.

You can find the tribute next to Old Burying Point Cemetery near all the Salem attractions. With or without flowers.

    Tour of Salem, is a very informative history and storytelling tour which covers many elements of Salem history. We learnt a lot about the witchcraft scare, architecture, maritime history, the religious history of the area and more.

    Seeing a photo and actually beigng there is a completely different story. Can be kind of creepy when you think about what happened there, especially at nighttime.
