Talk Tuesdays: Salem Witch Trials

So Blogtober didn’t go as I wanted it to. I got overwhelmed, since doing this was last minute, and didn’t realize that a whole month of content being thrown up daily, would take so much out of me, then to turn around and get hit with a flu turned cold didn’t help me this last just over a week. I’m not trying to excuse myself, but am expressing what’s been going on (and sharing it with you guys), and now I know how to approach a challenge like this in the future!

Anyway, why don’t we get on topic right?! Today I want to talk about the Salem Witch Trials, because what’s the Halloween spirit without witches?

We all know the general history of the Salem Witch Trials. It was a just over 1 year series of trials, where more than 200 people were accused of witchcraft, and about 20 getting hung for it. Read the History Channel’s article on this here. Not into reading? Watch Hailey Reese’s video here.

Now, are you interested in places to go, in a dream trip (or if you’re actually going to anywhere in New England)? Well here ya go darlin’:

The House of 7 Gables, they have tours (family, October only performances, general events, and varying hours. (what’s left of 2018, through the end of June 2019).

Of course, the Salem Witch Trials Memorial, because what’s this list without the Memorial?! Here’s a calendar for you.

Looking for the Museum? Here ya go. You can do a self guided tour and learn on your own, or go as a group.

Don’t be afraid to just even visit the town itself! It looks like a gorgeous town (I kind of like the colonial look myself).

If you’ve been to the Salem area (or are soon going), where did you go, what tours did you do, and how did you like it? I’d love to know, and I’m sure I’m not the only one!
