Owner description: The only remaining Salem structure with direct ties to the witch trials of 1692.
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Corwin House was home to one of the presiding judges in the trials of 1692. The home was built in the mid-seventeenth century and is definitely worth visiting. It has many displays and tales from 17th century living. You will not find anything like it on this side of the Atlantic.....

A small historic home that is dedicated to showing more of the day to day life of those living during the seventeenth century. Had a great amount of information about folk magic and herbal medicinals used during the time period. I really loved going through the house, seeing the furnishings (which I believe are from the 1600s) and learning of the family life. The museum gives a good representation and brings to life those who were involved in the trials.

We visited here as a family with 2 kids (11 & 9). We all enjoyed it! The house is small,but filled with lots of information to reas and antiques to view.
They kept the house close to it's original state, which I loved.
We took a pic in the living room and something resembling evil faces showed above the fireplace (no flash was used; you have to zoom in). I liked beinh able to walk through at our own pace.

The witch house is ominous & eerie, exactly as you’d expect. Worth visiting if you appreciate history!

One of the town's older historical buildings - it's dark and imposing, but slightly irregular structure give it an eerie feel even before going in!
