THE OLD WITCH HOUSE

The witch house was actually the home of the man who [fancied himself as] and acted as presiding judge [John Corbin] over the witch trials. It’s an interesting place to visit and admission was $8.00.

The fact that the house is called “The Old Witch House” is actually rather odd since no witch ever stepped-foot inside that, or any other house in Salem (for that matter!)

(The Witch House was moved four blocks from it’s original site many years ago, but no changes were made to any of the rooms inside.)
