I didn't expect to feel as moved as I did visiting this memorial. There is a heaviness in the air that conveys the seriousness of the situations these people were exposed to. The attached cemetery was closed for renovation, but you were able to see...More

Very meaningful memorial for the poor, innocent victims of the Salem Witch Hunt tragedy. Peaceful setting. Remember to bring flowers and read the quotes taken from court transcripts carved into the stone on the ground as you enter the memorial.

We walked through on our own during the day and took in the moment of looking at each bench. Stunning landscaping and being surrounded by the cemetery adds another dimension. We then returned tonight on the Bewitched Night Tour and our guide, John, gave us...More

Individual stone slabs raised up around a green space, each marking the victim, date of death and method. A tribute to those who died and a reminder to all, of their suffering and persecution.

It was very interesting to read the memorials to the people who were killed there. Its amazing what a little fear and limited education can promote people to do.

The memorials are wonderful, a true homage to the victims. Almost on top the area was a vendor selling french fries and people SAT on the memorials eating and on phones; the rank smell of grease filled the air and litter was left behind. Why...More

The park is very, very small. You would not let your dog go loose and you can have a dog.

There are no hours. It is open 24/7 and no admission is required. Although the area that it is in can get very crowded in October.

You can walk to the benches for free, and through the old cemetery, but you should not sit on the benches, or walk over any of the graves/stand on them.
