A lot of sad history in this house. Basically a torture house back in 1692, although they do not include that in the tours. No mention of it either. 2 mins after entering the house, I was done. It is well preserved, a lot of...More

We learned more about this house from a walking tour (Hauntings and History of Salem) than from the tour itself. We understood that there wouldn’t be a guide. However, it really would have helped the tour experience. There was a staff member texting on her...More
