  Witch's House
by RhondaRuth

Jonathan Corwin, a Salem merchant was living here in 1692. Corwin presided over many of the witchcraft examinations and later served on the Court of Oyer and Terminer. Although the house is known locally as the "Witch House," no person accused of witchcraft either lived or was imprisoned here. The house is open to the public. There is an admission charge. For that reason, I would call it a "Tourist Trap", but it might be interesting to take the tour to see what a house of this age would look like. I have yet to decide if I want to spare the money and see.
